Alley Park/Rising Park

My Lancaster friends have been telling me about these parks for a while.  Today, we are visiting two of Lancaster's finest gems:  Alley Park and Rising Park.

We'll begin at Alley Park.  There is some great scenery and about 5 miles of trail.

From there, we will take a short drive into Lancaster to hit Rising Park.  It is a short, steep hike with an AMAZING view.

Afterwards, we can hit one of Lancaster's great local restaurants for Lunch.

 

 

 

Columbus Carpool Info: We'll meet at Kaplan College (2745 Winchester Pike Columbus, OH 43232) at 9 AM, leaving at 9:10.

    Do we stay on the 33 bypass or drive through Lancaster to get to Alley Park? Also, what do you think the total time for each park will be, as I have a mid-afternoon commitment?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
