2021 Winter Fitness Hike – Gettysburg
545 Long Lane
Hike your way to better health with The Healthy Adams County Physical Fitness Task Force’s guided, socially distanced Winter Fitness Hikes! These fully-guided hikes are open to beginner and seasoned hikers; we will take breaks as necessary and maintain a moderate group pace while maintaining appropriate social distance. Wear a mask for the gathering at the start. You may remove your mask if you like once the group is spaced out on the trail – at least 10 feet buffer space for people not in your household. Trails may be uneven or muddy. Please wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring a water bottle. Layered clothing is advised. Walks are held rain or shine.
In case of severe weather please check here.
Park at the Sterner Building at the Rec Park.
The hike will use the Biser Trail to get to Howard Street, then neighborhood streets to the Armory onto W. Confederate Ave. At the VA Memorial, the hike will head left across the fields used by Pickett’s troop, emerging onto Hancock Avenue by The Angle. The hike then returns via neighborhood streets. Expect a quiet winter experience reminiscent of the nineteenth century. Relatively flat, part gravel/dirt trail, part roadways and sidewalks. Easy, but longer.
