Stony Valley Railroad Grade?

My wife has a conference near Hershey this weekend and I found this to go ride:

Worth doing? If not, I know the Swatara State Park is nearby...

Never heard of it until now, but it looks cool.

I couldn't find decent parking for the grade trail and I was crunched for time so I ended up doing the Swatara Rail Trail. It has a good mix of dirt and grass tracks, packed and thick gravel, singletrack in the woods and some pavement. The rain made for a wet ride towards the end.

Sorry I did not see this earlier. The Stoney Brook Rail Trail parking lot on the east side is on Gold Mine Rd. big lot. What I like about this trail is the Appalachian Trail goes on it for a very short distance. I've walked my bike to the Rausch Gap Shelter to get water and sleep the night.
