Line Hill Mound Area

Enter this park area just off of Route 4 on Rentschler Estates Drive. To access the park area, turn left at the large white barn. Just past the barn is a trailhead to the 1.2 mile Earthworks Trail. The "Earthwork Trail" skirts a large meadow before entering the forest, where a small ravine appears on the left. Just beyond, a large section of the earthwork appears among the trees on the right. This is its most distinctive feature that remains intact: the earthen ring embraced by two arcs, forming an elaborate gateway.

In 2016, enhancements to this area began, which are all a part of the overall Rentschler Forest MetroPark Master Concept Plan. These included the construction of four natural grass practice fields, additional parking, a new pond, as well as a service road to Reigart Road. Please note that this area is currently closed to the public to allow time for the grass to grow before welcoming park/owners to this space. Once the grass is established, typically a two-year process, the fields will be open for use. The anticipated first use will be in 2018. The service road will be opened on an as needed basis once the area is available for use.
