Trails

trails_first_page_2Take a walk or hike on one of our seven trails…

Our trails meander through a variety of Pennsylvania habitats, including wet and dry woodlands, two mountain streams, ponds, and a restored mineral quarry. Diverse plants and wildlife make their homes here, including marsh marigold, trout lily, deer, fox, red-spotted newts, barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, and wild turkey.

Trails are open daily to the public, dawn to dusk.

Stop by our kiosk for trail maps and informational guides about the landscape.

Remember to bring your book, sketch pad, guitar or a picnic to enjoy a few hours in the sun. Strawberry Hill has wonderful places – benches, tables, grassy areas – to relax, breathe fresh air and enjoy your family and friends.
