Hiking to History

June 16 at 1:00 pm

The remains of lumber history are all around us.  Join museum volunteers John & Jan Halter for a free guided hike of the Working Forest Interpretive Trail at Cherry Springs State Park. Along the easy, one-mile trail, learn about the area’s history as well as some of the management practices employed in a working forest to provide multiple uses for public, industry, and environmental needs.
After the hike, those interested can drive a few miles to Lyman Run State Park and join the Halters for a brief hike to the remains of a former birch still. Participants should meet at the information kiosk across the road from the Observation Field at Cherry Springs State Park on Route 44 (4639 Cherry Springs Road Coudersport, PA 16915). Children are welcome.
Interested in getting out to see what remains at other locations associated with Pennsylvania’s lumbering past? The museum has created two self-guided lumber history hiking brochures to encourage folks to lace up their hiking boots and explore the surrounding forests. Find beautiful vistas, lumber ghost towns, ruins, and the remains of former Civilian Conservation Corps sites. Check out our website for more information.
