New Trail Map Posted at Rocky Ridge County Park
The York County Planning Commission partnered with the York County Parks Department to produce new maps that are posted throughout Rocky Ridge County Park.  The Rocky Ridge map currently shows the park boundary with shaded relief, points of interest and elevation profiles for each trail.  Since Rocky Ridge is known for its excellent biking/hiking trail system, this map highlights these features to make it easy for the public to envision the level of difficulty and see the distance prior to even setting foot in the trail.  These maps are posted at kiosks throughout the Park.  Similar maps of William Kain County Park have been posted in the kiosks within that park.  The Planning Commission will continue to work with the Parks Department to produce similar maps for the other County Parks.
