We will hike a few miles of the 18.5 miles of trails open to walking, all-terrain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. Our walk takes us through the old growth forest and along the Bushkill Creek in this 1,168-acre state park that contains Henrys’ Woods. To improve the stream’s health, Wildlands Conservancy has removed a few very low dams on the Bushkill. The Jacobsburg Historical Society has exhibits and demonstrations of early gun making, and operates the Pennsylvania Long Rifle Heritage Museum on site. Also, the Historical Society offers a wide range of exciting historical programs throughout the year, including mid-1840s rendezvous, encampments, and historical crafts. This hike is appropriate for children of all ages. Dogs on leash are welcome. Wear sturdy shoes and bring walking stick/hiking poles. Bring binoculars/cameras to capture the beauty of autumn at Jacobsburg.
