A small group of enthusiastic hikers (Carol, Renee, Cathy, and Cory) went up Mt. Nittany with MNC board member Vince Verbeke on Sunday, July 3rd. They were led up the Mountain to the Mike Lynch Overlook. Then the group continued on along the Blue Trail to the Mount Nittany Middle School/Boalsburg Overlook, then to the Deeded Square Inches site. Along the way, they heard from the “The Legend of the Valley” as well stories about Lions Paw and Conservancy history.
Each of the hikers who joined the guided hike commented on what a great idea this was. We agree and plan to do more. To keep up with plans for future hikes, you can follow us on Facebook.
The Conservancy has established this series of seasonal guided hikes in memory of Director Emeritus Pat Farrell, who frequented the mountain and traditionally climbed each New Year’s Day. Since 1981, Mount Nittany Conservancy has worked to conserve more than 825 acres of Mt. Nittany, the Centre Region’s most prominent landmark. It maintains more than ten miles of hiking trails and eleven overlooks on the mountain for visitors to enjoy.
