Hike your way to better health with The Healthy Adams County Physical Fitness Task Force’s guided, socially distanced Winter Fitness Hikes! These fully-guided hikes are open to beginner and seasoned hikers; we will take breaks as necessary and maintain a moderate group pace while maintaining appropriate social distance. Wear a mask for the gathering at the start. You may remove your mask if you like once the group is spaced out on the trail – at least 10 feet buffer space for people not in your household. Trails may be uneven or muddy. Please wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring a water bottle. Layered clothing is advised. Walks are held rain or shine.
In case of severe weather please check here.
Park in Lot 2 (the one past the swimming pool).
The trail follows the millrace of an old rolling mill. It passes through one of the oldest white pine plantations in Pennsylvania and is a great place to see woodland birds. The trail is rocky with light elevation, easy. An alternate hike via the AT and 3 Valley Trail to the Ramble Trail is also available – this has a lot more elevation, difficult/challenging ascent at the start. There will be a leader for both hikes. This hike will take approximately 1.5 hours (2.2 miles).
