Quittie Creek Nature Park

About This Area

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Quittie Creek Nature Park is a 36-acre wooded recreation area with historic landmarks, along 1.25 miles of the Quittapahilla Creek. Trails run alongside the creek as well as through the wooded recreation area. This park is a great stop for those looking to be in nature without traveling too far away from the Palmyra/Annville/Lebanon area. While there are some residential properties alongside the nature park it feels quiet and secluded. The quarry pond, foot bridge, historic lime kilns, and natural features make this park a great one for explorers of all ages.

**Pay attention to the coordinates. If you simply search for Quittie Creek Nature park on Waze or Google Maps it will take you to south end of the footbridge, where there is not a parking area or vehicular crossing. Best access is off Bachman Road where there are two parking areas, signage, and port-a-potty.

I’m Ruth, and my little hiker is Ellie. We joined Hike it Baby in November 2017, when she was just two months old. I was a new mom, with a new baby, in a new place looking for a community to connect to and a way to get moving gently. In the Fall of 2018 we opened a new branch, Hike it Baby Lebanon-Hershey, Pa. The new branch is a little closer to home, and hope to increase participation in our local community. I’ve always love the outdoors and an occasional hike and Hike it Baby has connected me to the outdoors in a new region of the country. I am proud to get outdoors more frequently and hope to raise a daughter that loves to be outside.
