Prior Trails of the Month

April, 2023 – Bear Creek Preserve

Nestled in the heart of a lush forest in Bear Creek lies a serene nature preserve full of diverse, sensitive habitats and opportunities for adventure. The Natural Lands Bear Creek Preserve is the perfect place for a peaceful hike to usher in Spring.


March, 2023 – Eales Preserve

As we all learned at a young age, Pennsylvania was historically clear-cut, mined, and industrialized up until the early 1900s. Although you may not find many old-growth forests in the Northeastern PA region, the restoration and preservation projects that have taken place locally are a site to behold. This, coupled with breathtaking views of PA’s Northeastern corridor and a diverse array of flora and fauna, is what makes The Nature Conservancy’s Dick and Nancy Eales Preserve at Moosic Mountain so special.

For those that enjoy the snow and cold, Pinchot State Forest is the perfect place to recreate at this time of year.
