This restaurant is located right on the Susquehanna River in the river town of Wrightsville, PA. One fun outdoor suggestion is taking two cars, parking one near the restaurant and one at High Point Scenic Park. At High Point, follow the Mason Dixon Trail north towards Wrightsville. This hike is largely downhill and takes you past some beautiful vistas. You will also get to walk through one the Conservancy's nature preserves, Wilton Meadows, which is only accessible on foot. End the day refueling at the John Wright Restaurant.
