Quarryville & Farmlands

The trail crosses Church Street on a historic skewed arch bridge and then skirts the northern edge of town, which began as a company town for the nearby quarry. Today, Quarryville is a central hub for the southern Lancaster County community, especially Amish residents. Quaint shops,
stores, and restaurants are not far from trail access points.

Beyond Quarryville, the trail runs in a cut through classic Lancaster countryside along working Amish farms. Pennsylvania Railroad electric lines still stand on the side of the trail supplying electricity from Safe
Harbor Dam to Parkesburg for Amtrak service.
