Hike Cameron County on National Trail Day
Saturday June 5 is National Trail Day. Thousands of people across the United States will take to trails and explore. In Cameron County the tradition continues. A guided 6-mile hike on the Bucktail Path is planned. Hikers will travel from Ridge Road to Grove Run. Participants are to meet at the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce office at 10am.
Since 2010 Nelson Haas and Jim Kempher with the aid of Mountaineer Search & Rescue have led folks on hikes exploring different regions of the county. West Creek Rails Trail, Canoe Run, Brooks Run, are just a few of the trails. Hikers have seen fire towers, snake dens, beaver dams, Woodsman of the World monument and the Survivor Rock from the Pepper Hill Fire.
Haas and Kempher suggest a walking stock, sturdy shoes, water, and a lunch for the hike on Saturday June 5. Registration is not required for the free hike but suggested to make carpooling arrangements. Call 814-486-4314 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
