Park Activities

The 1,125-acre Caledonia State Park is in Adams and Franklin counties, midway between Chambersburg and Gettysburg on US 30. Caledonia is in the northernmost section of the Blue Ridge Mountains known locally as South Mountain. Blue Mountain, the easternmost ridge of the Allegheny Mountains, is to the west and northwest of the park across a large low, rolling, fertile valley known as the Great Valley. South Mountain is mostly composed of a hard rock called quartzite. The valleys on either side are underlined with limestone and shale. The soil is ideal for fruit production, proven by the abundance of orchards in the surrounding area.

See our exhibits to learn how many sandwiches were served here in 1921 during the Good Roads Jubilee and by what other means could people travel from Caledonia Park to Chambersburg.

There's a fairly steep climb at the start of the hearth trail, but when you finish there is a nice loop that takes you along the mountain ridge with views from many angles.
