Monocacy Hill Recreation Area is a 428 acre forest located in Amity Township , Douglassville, PA. This recreation area was purchased by Amity Township in 1967 for open space and recreation purposes. It features over 5 miles of forest trails and is open year round from dawn to dusk for a variety of activities. Park rules and trail maps are available at the park entrance on Geiger Road.
Monocacy Hill is a valuable natural resource in this area, providing habitat for wild animals and plants, watershed protection and various kinds of outdoor recreation for the people of this region. With development increasing all around us, Monocacy Hill is one of the few natural open spaces remaining in the area. The Monocacy Hill Conservation Association (MHCA)assists Amity Township year round in maintaining the trails and facilities. The work that we do allows area residents to enjoy this beautiful recreation area.
MHCA sponsors special programs and activities at Monocacy Hill that are open to the public and are free of charge. Some programs require pre-registration. All activities are weather permitting.
