Event description

Description

Cross the mighty Susquehanna, tour underground spectacle and a chocolate wonderland.

Start: Harrisburg train station
Finish: Hershey
Distance: 22mi
Return: Uber
Coordinator: Charles Updike

Transit: Amtrak on Friday, Greyhound from NY Port Authority and Philly Bus Terminal arrives right on time, leaves shortly after the walk. Weekend bus service has been suspended, but there is a thriving amount of Uber business between Harrisburg and Hersheypark to support our return, as you likely can imagine.

Harrisburg to Hershey, with a loop of the capitol, a terrific pedestrian bridge over the Susquehanna, a tour of a local cavern (our first underground FreeWalk!), and a chocolate immersion.

Chocolate World, is a free Disney-style ride that surrounds you with the process of producing cocoa products, after which you exit into a massive Hershey's gift 'shop' that is more like a village.

Highlights:

-State Capitol
-Susquehanna River
-Echo Caverns
-Hershey Gardens
-Chocolate World
-Hershey monorail
