New Trail Opens in Lycoming County

October 18, 2012

Traverse a variety of terrains, cross a small stream, wind uphill through woods and learn how a deer exclosure is helping to regenerate a forest along the new 1.1 mile trail that opened last month in Loyalsock Township, Lycoming County.

The Conservation Learning Trail provides an outdoor classroom, as it is designed to teach useres about conservation through tree identification markers, invasive species identification, and conservation practices like rotational grazing, riparian buffers, and stream bank fencing to keep livestock out of the water.

The trail is open from dawn to dusk and the trailhead is accessible from the Lysock View visitor's parking area.
