Description: Visit one of Centre County's most famous landmarks to learn about local history and natural features. Participants will embark on a tour- or self-guided hike to the best view in State College: the recently renovated Mike Lynch Overlook. One guided tour will be offered per hour, on the hour, with staggered start times for various ability groups. Upon reaching the mountain’s peak (approx .75 miles), guests will return to the trailhead or continue on the full trail (approx. 4 miles). While climbing up Mt. Nittany is no joke to begin with the fitness option this week will take you further and faster. Taking the alternate side route a mile and 40 feet higher will give you plenty of opportunity to work off breakfast. A quick peak out over the Nittany Mall Overlook before heading back to the Mike Lynch Overlook and down the mountain will give you new perspectives on the community. Please arrive promptly at 2 pm on Sunday and 5 pm on Wednesday for this longer hike.
