Old Roads and Main Trail Guided Hike: Saturday, January 27 @ 10:00 AM, meet at the Justa Road Access Area. 

Break out of the house and embrace the winter weather by joining volunteer, Ron Waszk for a guided hike through the old paved roadways throughout the Pennsylvania State Gamelands and Blue Marsh property! There is a great variety of habitats in this area that should result in some great bird and wildlife sightings!  Don’t forget your binoculars. The hike path is group’s choice between different loop variations in the area. Opt for an easy to moderate hike of just over 3.75 mile hike, or a more challenging 5 mile hike!

 

Foxtrot and Lakeside Exploration Guided Hike: Saturday, February 24 @ 10:00 AM, meet at Dry Brooks Boat Ramp. 

Get up and get out! The lake is still down and is perfect for exploration! Join us for a hike along the lake edge and then back up onto the main trail to explore the area around the Dry Brooks Day Use Area. The hike will be an easy to moderate 2.5-3 miles. 

 

Geocache Guided Hike: Saturday, March 31 @ 10:00 AM, meet at the Visitor Center Parking Lot. 

Learn about Geocaching while hiking with volunteer, Ron Waszk! Start off with a brief introduction about what geocaching is and how it works then head out on the trail to apply your new skills! Our trek will take us over across the top of the dam along the trail to the Spillway. We will then follow the trail to a portion of Water Road and follow the Tulpehocken Creek back to the Stilling Basin. The hike distance will be easy to moderate and approximately 3.5 miles.
