Bullfrog Valley Nature Path to Shank Park

Bullfrog Valley Nature Path to Shank Park Professional Review and Guide

"This hike follows the paved Jonathan Eshenour Memorial Trail beneath a canopy of tall tulip poplars into Shank Park. Upon entering the park, the nature trail departs from the Eshenour Trail and makes a loop around the perimeter of the park. The Bullfrog Valley Pond–Shank Park Nature Trail begins at the Bullfrog Valley Pond parking area and then follows a 0.85-mile section of the Jonathan Eshenour Memorial Trail south to Shank Park.

At that point, the nature trail departs from the Eshenour Trail, enters the woods, and makes a 1.5-mile loop through the environs of the 90-acre Shank Park before rejoining the paved Eshenour Trail and returning to the car. To begin this hike, walk from your car in the Bullfrog Valley Pond parking lot across the footbridge over the feeder stream to Bullfrog Valley Pond, and turn left (south) on the Eshenour Trail."

If you happen to visit Hershey and want a natural diversion after visiting Hershey Park (or to burn off all the chocolate), this is a pleasant little park. It's nice and shady with a creek and if you go into the park there's a small lake with some ducks. Definitely not a tough hike but it's a nice spot to take a walk by yourself or with your dog.
