Walk in Penn's Woods - Colton Point

Since 2017, the Walk in Penn’s Woods partnership has been working to offer Pennsylvanians a statewide day of walks in the woods on the first Sunday in October. These walks provide an excellent opportunity to get out, have fun, and learn about Pennsylvania’s forests, to see forests in new ways, and to understand and appreciate the many values we hold for the woods.

This hike will follow in the footsteps of the local “CCC Boys.” Learn about the Civilian Conservation Corps, the boys who served in the program, and the legacy they left behind. This program will feature a half mile hike on flat to moderate terrain around Colton Point State Park and highlight park features created by the CCC as well as photographs and stories. Sturdy footwear and water is recommended. Dress for the weather.

Participants have the option to bring their own picnic lunch and stay afterwards to enjoy one of the many pavlions the tour will highlight.

Co-hosted by the Tioga County Woodland Owners Association.

In the event of severe weather, this event will be cancelled.
