More about this destination:
At 100 years-old or less, most of Pennsylvania’s trees are fairly young due to the state’s nearly complete deforestation by Europeans through the 1800’s. However at Alan Seeger Natural Area, you can step back in time and into a stand of old-growth trees ranging that were left untouched due to confusion over which logging company had rights to land. Wander under ancient giants and come eye to eye with recently fallen ones while following a trail loop that’s less than a mile long. Extend your adventure by exploring beyond the natural area via the Standing Stone Trail to connect to the wider trail system in Rothrock.
