The Chambersburg Rail Trail is a 1.2 mile paved urban trail that connects neighborhoods just a few blocks west of the community’s central business district. Starting at South Street, the trail occupies the center of a boulevard that separates north and southbound lanes of traffic. Stops are required at each intersection. At the busier streets there is a pedestrian crossing button that activates flashing yellow lights to warn the vehicular traffic of a pedestrian crossing. About midway along the trail there is a pedestrian bridge crossing the Conocochenague Creek and providing access to downtown shops and businesses. The paved trail ends at Commerce Street.
