Independence Day Weekend Hike

Join us on Friday, July 5 (weather permitting) for a guided tour of the amazing Spruce Flats Bog area followed by picnic lunch.  We will meet at 10am in the Foundation parking lot and carpool or caravan to Laurel Summit State Park.  We will be met by Rachel Mahoney, Environmental Education Specialist at Forbes State Forest, who will accompany us on the short walk to the bog and point out some of the plants and animals that thrive there.  Then Rachel will lead us on a moderate 2-2.5-mile hike around the bog.

After the hike we will enjoy a light picnic lunch.  On our way back we may want to detour to nearby Ligonier for some ice cream.  The Social and Rec committee will provide water, trail snacks, crackers and cheese, fruit and chips.  Bring whatever else you would like to eat or drink for lunch.  Wear sturdy closed toed shoes or boots and bring sunscreen, insect repellent an trekking poles if you like.  Please sign up on the Hidden Valley website under the events calendar.
