Free guided hike at West End Regional Park

Part of the Get Outdoors Poconos series

Sunday, December 17, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Brodhead Watershed Association

The 244-acre West End Regional Park owned by Chestnuthill Township, in northeastern Pennsylvania, features a variety of trails – including a flat, handicapped-accessible path, exercise stations throughout, and meadow and woodland trails. A recent addition built by volunteers adds even greater appeal: a network of single-track trails to challenge mountain bikers and hikers.

Brodhead Watershed Association will host a guided hike at 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 17, for a moderate to challenging hike of about 2 miles exploring the new network.

Starting upslope along an open field, the trail includes beautiful views, a wooded detour, a bubbling creek with rockwall dam, and unusual finds such as antique farm equipment left to rust. Signs of the large tree nursery that once flourished here remain.

Trails cross and loop among the trees to create challenges for mountain bikers. Uphill and down, they make for challenging and exhilarating hiking, too.

Join Brodhead Watershed Association hike leader Carol Hillestad for this moderate to challenging hike of about 2 miles.

WHEN: 10 a.m. Sunday, December 17, 2017

COST: Free, but registration is required. Directions will be provided upon registration.
