Rocky Ridge County Park is a traditional picnic/ recreational area. The prime attractions for this park are picnic pavilions, multi-use trails, and scenic views of the Susquehanna Valley. Ninety percent of this 750 acre park is a mature mixed oak forest.

Rocky Ridge is one of eight parks administered by the York County Department of Parks and Recreation, and it was acquired in 1968.


There are two picnic areas in the park. Pavilions can be reserved for a nominal fee in advance by contacting the Parks Office, (otherwise first come first serve basis). Pavilions and restrooms are ADA accessible.

Hidden Laurel Picnic Area has six pavilions available for use. All six pavilions are conveniently located near the playground, horseshoe pits, parking lot, restrooms, sand volleyball court and softball field. One pavilion with a fireplace is enclosed for use during winter months.

Oak Timbers Picnic Area has five pavilions available

for use during the spring and summer months. This area is closed to the public from October 1 st through April 15th for our Christmas Magic, "A Festival of Lights," show.

MULTI-USE TRAILS (as shown on map)

Over twelve miles of trails are open to hikers,

horseback riders and mountain bikers. However, these trails are closed to mountain bikers and horseback riders during "muddy conditions", as determined by park rangers. For up -to- date trail conditions, refer to the trail open/closed sign located along the entrance road, or call the parks office. Trail updates are available 24 hours a day. No bikes or horses are permitted in picnic areas.


Horseshoe pits are located in Hidden Laurel and Oak Timbers picnic areas. Bring your own horseshoes.
