Saturday February 16, 2013 - French Creek/ Horseshoe Trail

Approx 5-6 miles

We will continue our Horseshoe Trail series of section hikes. This hike starts at the firetower entrance road in French Creek Park, then winds through the surrounding gameland. Come and see the park in the winter with the leaves down. After walking through a variety of terrain we will end at the intersection of a farm lane and Geigertown Road. This is a shuttle hike. Heavy snow cancels. Lunch in Birdsboro will follow for those interested.

Meeting place: 10:00 am parking lot across from the French Creek Visitors Center on Park Road
