Walk in the Allegheny National Forest

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Allegheny National Forest – Walk starts at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m.
Walk Address: Tracy Ridge Campground parking lot; GPS coordinates – 41.945 – 78.876
Walk Description: Walk will start at Tracy Ridge Campground parking lot and proceed to trailhead of trail #1 which is about 50 yards west of the parking lot. Walk will continue along marked trail for about 0.8 miles, at which point we’ll take a detour uphill and to the east to intersect the “E loop” of campsites. In this area there are several large surviving American chestnut trees whose crowns reach the canopy as well as many smaller chestnut trees. Walkers could head back to the parking lot along the campground roads from this point. However, the guided walk will continue back downhill to rejoin the marked trail, and proceed along this trail down along Johnnycake Run. About a mile further along the way there is another area with numerous American chestnut trees, at least one of which is about 70 feet tall. At this point the guided walk will turn back and return to the parking lot along the same route. Terrain is moderately sloping. Trail is well-marked but rocky in places; level of difficulty is considered “moderate.” Overall walk is about 1.5 to 2 miles out and same distance back. Sponsored by the PA/NJ Chapter of The American Chestnut Foundation. Please email mail@patacf.org if you plan to join this walk. Since walk will end around lunchtime, feel free to bring a picnic lunch; campsites have picnic tables and most are usually not occupied at this time of year. People-friendly leashed pets are allowed; owner must clean up after their pets. This is not a wheelchair and stroller friendly walk.
