Join us on a rugged and strenuous hike from Clark Nature Preserve to Tucquan Glen & Pyfer Nature Preserves. Two dates: September 17 & 18 from 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.
As work continues to improve the ecological health, safety, and sustainability of the trail system throughout Lancaster’s River Hills, we are excited to offer a rugged 4-mile hike that combines a section of the scenic long-distance Conestoga Trail between Clark and Tucquan Glen & Pyfer Nature Preserves with the trail being restored along Tucquan Creek. Explore and enjoy the defining beauty of the Susquehanna Riverlands from its iconic rhododendron and hemlock forest to some seriously cool geology. At the end of the hike, a shuttle will take us all back to our cars at Clark Nature Preserve.
Where to Meet:
The parking area at Clark Nature Preserve located at the end of House Rock Road.
