York County Parks has closed a section of the Heritage Rail Trail from daylight until 4 p.m. for several days while dead trees are removed.

Large electronic signs announce the closure between miles 18 and 19, from the Regents Glen entrance to Indian Rock Dam Road. Approximately 20 trees, mostly ash but also a few locust and walnut trees, are being removed in the area to make the trail safer for trail users and neighboring homes. 

Shawn Mehaffie and sister Sherry Shipley of Yard Images load tree debris into a chipper while removing dead trees  from the Heritage Rail Trail between miles 18-19 to make the area safer for trail users. The trail will be closed through Friday. Wednesday, September 18, 2019.
