About Safe Harbor:


Access to Safe Harbor is currently being negotiated. This is a much larger issue than just climbers gaining access. It involved the role of local government in establishing a rail-trail. We fully believe that some result will be reached in 2004. A full management plan has been developed for the rail-trail including climbing as an approved use. When the trail is established, climbing will be permitted. STAY AWAY UNTIL THEN!!

To read up on the issues, check out these articles from the Lancaster Online, the website for the local newspaper which has been regularly covering the issues.
