No horses allowed on the Rhododendron Section
Large overlook of the Susquehanna River and Lower Bear Island.
The Rhododendron Trail
is very narrow—only approximately one person wide. There is also steep inclines and declines in this section that can result in loose footing. Take precautions with children.
Need to Know
Restrooms are only at the playground. Also, the water point is located here.
The trail starts and ends at the Overlook Point with a large view of the Susquehanna River. Many birds are viewed from this high overlook, and the point includes a metered binocular. The trail then continues to the Rhododendron Trail
that experiences bloom in late June/early July. The midpoint reveals the playground with swings and slides. The trail then widens on the Landis Trail
that eventually returns to the Overlook Trail
Flora & Fauna
A variety of birds are viewed at the overlook, including bald eagles.
