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 begins and ends at the Rec Park in Gettysburg. Three different routes are being offered this year: 12-miles, 25-miles and 37-miles. All rides travel through the Gettysburg National Military Park and over picturesque Sachs Covered Bridge. The longer rides also wind through the quiet country roads to the south of Gettysburg with a rest stop part way through to recharge.
Preregistration is available online through the end of the day on September 26. Ride-day registration is also available and opens at 8:15am. The cost is just $35 for pre-registered riders and $40 on the day of ride. A free BBQ lunch is provided starting at 11am. A t-shirt is included in the price of registration for those registering by September 3.
Proceeds from this event will be used to design, develop and maintain trails and bike routes in and around Gettysburg, PA. Healthy Adams Bicycle/Pedestrian, Inc. (HABPI) is currently pursuing development of an off-road bike/pedestrian trail from Gettysburg south to the Maryland border that will fill in one of the missing pieces of the Grand History Trail. A study of potential trail routes is now underway.
