This hike will put you into scenic view overload as you cross hilltop meadows with views of the rolling hills of Pennsylvania all around. But beware - those rolling hills will give you quite a workout. This hike involves several fairly steep up and down stretches. There are some building complexes on the horizon that you need to turn a blind eye to and apparently there is a shooting range nearby that you will need to tune out but for the views, it is well worth doing this hike. This preserve was a 1 1/2 hour drive for me and it takes me almost half an hour to get through back roads to I-78 at exit 41 so from that point, it's about an hour drive. The preserve is about 7 miles northwest of Allentown, PA. In addition to the views there are resident elk and bison to see, a covered bridge built in 1882 that will be no more once it is replaced in 2013, and if you are so inclined, a zoo (entrance fee applies) smack in the middle of the preserve. There are many numbered kiosks throughout but most of them had empty map boxes. I found a remote kiosk stocked with maps and brought a few with me so if anyone would like one, I am happy to mail a copy. The map opens to 24x18 so it's much better than the PDF file I made of a JPEG I found online. I think if you "friend" me you can send me a message with your mailing address. Although I hiked 11 miles (there are about 20 miles of trails) I wrote this up as an 8-mile hike since I ran into an impossible creek crossing and had to make a major reroute. I have detailed at the end of my blog where that area is that should be avoided. There is hunting allowed in parts of the preserve so best to hike on a Sunday.
