Explore Clarion River Lands: Maxwell Run & Boiler Trail Ramble

Are you curious as to what scenic surprises, wildlife, and local history lie within the newly acquired Clarion River Lands?  If so, you’ll need a guide to get you there.  Trails are steep, rocky, and sometimes hard to find, but the wilderness experience will be worth the effort.  This 3.5mile interpretive and very strenuous hike drops 550ft to the valley floor, goes past the old boiler, and up Maxwell Run, a hidden jewel of stream tucked away in a scenic hemlock valley.  The hike out though is off trail and straight up!  Pack a lunch & water.  Please meet at the Park Office where we’ll drive to the starting point.
