Yes we have a famous battlefield to tour by car, bicycle, horseback, and even on foot but we boast a wealth of activities beyond those historic acres.
From historic taverns to ethnic cuisine, farm-to-table dining to unique edibles, the tastes of Gettysburg are sure to please every palate.
With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
This year’s Ride for Trails bike ride begins and ends at the Rec Park in Gettysburg. Two different routes are being offered: a 25-mile ride and a 12-mile ride. Both rides travel through the Gettysburg National Military Park and over picturesque Sachs Covered Bridge. The longer ride will also wind its way through the quiet country roads of southern Adams County with a rest stop midway through the route. Preregistration is available online through the end of the day on Sept 20. Ride-day registration is also available and opens at 8:15 a.m. The self-paced longer ride leaves at 9 a.m. The shorter ride will be guided by members of HABPI and departs at 9:30 a.m. A free lunch is provided starting at 11 a.m. A t-shirt is included in the price of registration for those registering by Sept 1. By participating in HABPI's 3rd Annual Ride for Trails you will be supporting public recreational opportunities and alternative transportation within the local community and Adams County.
