With nearly 9 miles of volunteer-maintained trails and scenic views, Mt. Nittany offers a unique setting for local recreation. Since 1981, we have been working hard to protect Mt. Nittany from commercial and residential development by acquiring land and maintaining areas already under the Conservancy’s ownership.
Preservation of Mt. Nittany for future generations of Centre Countians, Penn Staters and other lovers of the outdoors is our primary concern.
Our two organizations continue to build and maintain trails and overlooks, conduct clean-up projects and spray for gypsy moths. We keep a wary eye out to prevent further encroachment and a sharp eye out for parcels of land to obtain in the future. We wish to hold all available land from the 1,300-foot elevation to the 2,200-foot crest as seen from the campus and the Mount Nittany Expressway, as well as add land on the Boalsburg side if funding permits.
