Gerard Trail Series Backpacking Trip

The final hike of our Gerard Trail Series is an overnight backpacking trip, where we will cover approximately 12 miles of difficult terrain and stay overnight in the Cow Run Shelters.

There is a Backpacking Q&A meeting on September 21 at 6pm in the park office to go over the itinerary, recipes/meal ideas, how to pack a pack, gear to bring, etc. The park has camping and backpacking gear for use if you do not have your own. 

Registration is required, and priority will be given to those who attended the first four hikes in the series. Ages 16+. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a participating adult. To register, call or email the park naturalist at 814.676.1810 or ikuberry@pa.gov
