Pine Hill is a 15-acre arboretum owned by East Pennsboro Township. The arboretum extends from the bank of the Conodoguinet Creek across Creekside Drive and up the hill to Humer Street. This unique site provides opportunities for nature exploration, wildlife and bird watching, hiking, boating and fishing. Pine Hill was originally the summer home of local medical doctor Harvey B. Bashore. Dr. Bashore was a noted naturalist and wrote a number of books and articles on health, sanitation and local history. Many types of plants and wild flowers as well as wildlife have been identified and documented here. Parking is limited to a small unpaved area along Creekside Drive, Enola.
