PROJECT DETAILS

Seven years in the making, this project was originally designed by Penn Trails and completed in many phases due to budget and capacity constraints. Penn Trails oversaw construction by numerous volunteers, staff, and even the Pennsylvania Outdoor Corps to chip away at this Universal Access trail alongside a unique and high quality stream within Kings Gap State Park.

In Fall of 2021 trail construction was completed during a two-week push by Penn Trails and State Park staff.
