Cook It & They Will Come Hike
October 28 @ 10:00 AM
Join us for a hike on the Bog & Boulder Trail at Gallitzin State Forest. The Bog and Boulder Trail is part of the John P. Saylor trail system, located south of Windber, PA. These yellow blazed trails make a cross-connector between the east and west sections of the John P. Saylor Trail. They also offer unique views of highland bogs and boulder fields.
After we explore the Bog & Boulder Trail we’ll head to the Babcock Picnic area for a cook out. Bring your favorite outdoor cooking dish to share with others.
**Please comment with the dish you plan on bringing.**
We will provide charcoal for the grills for anyone needing to cook or heat up their dish. We will also provide water, tea & hot water for coffee or hot chocolate, but feel free to bring your own preferred drinks. Alcohol is NOT permitted in state forests.
