Columbia Crossing River Trails Center

The Columbia Crossing River Trails Center is managed by Susquehanna Heritage. It is a gateway center for education and trailhead for river and land trails in the area as it is located right on the Susquehanna River. 

The trailhead for the 14-mile Northwest Lancaster County River Trail is at Columbia Crossing. 

There is a boat and kayak/canoe launch in Columbia River Park on the property. There is an outfitter on site in the warmer months that offers canoes, kayaks, and bike rentals.
