Established in 1992 and covering 176 acres, the Heritage Rail Trail County Park is 27 miles long and runs north from the Mason Dixon line just south of the Borough of New Freedom through Glen Rock, Hanover Junction, and Seven Valleys, through the Howard Tunnel to the Colonial Courthouse in the City of York. The trail connects to Maryland's 20-mile long Torrey C. Brown Trail. In addition to the Colonial Courthouse, three historic structures are located on the trail; Hanover Junction and New Freedom Train Stations and Howard Tunnel.
