Veterans Ride – Glen Rock Express

Nov 11, 2016

Ride Time(s):

November 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Veterans ride FREE with a paying adult, sponsored by Prospect Hill Cemetery in York, PA. If you are a Veteran or traveling with a Veteran, please call us at 717-942-2370 to reserve your excursion on the 11th.  We salute our Veterans and thank them for their service!

Travel along the beautiful York County Heritage Rail Trail. The one hour ride to Glen Rock and 2 1/2 hour ride to Hanover Junction will take you back in time to the 1860’s when President Lincoln rode these tracks on his way to Gettysburg to deliver his now famous Gettysburg Address. It is also the same route taken by the Lincoln funeral train two years later. ALL ABOARD!
