Although this bike ride starts on the NCR Trail, most of the ride is on the York Heritage Trail.  The turn-around will be the restored rail station at Hanover Junction, PA. The station has been restored to appear as it did in 1863. Judge for yourself if a group picture at the station shows Abraham Lincoln waiting to switch trains on his journey to deliver the Gettysburg Address.


We take a lunch break on the way back at Glenn Rock along the trail.  A quick order Italian restaurant is right by the trail in Glenn Rock.
