Welsh Mountain Nature Preserve is one of Lancaster County’s few remaining natural areas. An area of wooded slopes and rock outcroppings, this land supports a diversity of plant and animal life. Public trails along the rugged ridgeline provide scenic vistas of Amish farms in the valleys below. The preserve also protects the views from the Conestoga Water Trail, as well as hiking trails through the woodlands. An extensive network of trails already exists on the preserve north of Gault Road.
