Comments: Dillsburg traditional walk is a memorial walk for John McCoy (1/20/41 11/24/16, who originally laid out the trails for this walk in the summer of 2006. We will be using Johns original directions, with very few changes. John was a very active member of York White Rose Wanderers from 2001 to 2016. He was newsletter editor, trailmaster of many walks, and organizer of annual bus trips.
