Are you looking for an interesting way to spend Halloween? The public is invited to come on out to Trough Creek State Park in James Creek near Raystown Lake on Sunday, October 30, 2011, for a free guided hike to Raven Rock along the park’s trails.
Come out and enjoy a Halloween hike at one of the best kept secrets in Pennsylvania, Trough Creek State Park where legend has it that Edgar Allan Poe got his inspiration for the Raven from the ravens that nested on the cliffs.
In addition to enjoying an afternoon hiking, participants will also pass by such natural wonders as Rainbow Falls, Balanced Rock and possibly hear ravens. At Raven Rock hikers will rest while listening to a recitation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.
This hike is rated moderate to difficult hiking and may not be appropriate for all members of the family because of steep climbs and narrow trails with high cliffs. Please keep in mind that the hike may be shortened due to weather or trail conditions. Participants are asked to dress for the weather, wear good hiking shoes, bring lots of water and a snack. Don’t forget your camera, as there are many natural wonders to capture along the way. Four legged hikers are welcome also but remember to bring a leash.
