Trail Description

Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve is a private nonprofit education and conservation institution located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Pennsylvania. Strawberry Hill’s mission is to connect the community with the natural world by teaching, inspiring, and promoting environmental stewardship. The 609-acre preserve features a variety of habitats to explore, including wet and dry woodlands, three ponds, two pristine mountain streams, and much more. Recently selected as a stop on Pennsylvania Audubon’s Susquehanna River Birding and Wildlife Trail, Strawberry Hill offers the avid birder a chance to spot Barred, Screech, and Great Horned Owls, Pileated Woodpeckers, American Woodcock, Ruffed Grouse, Wild Turkey, Scarlet Tanager, Wood Thrush, Great Blue Heron, and Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds, among others. White-tailed deer, bobcats, coyotes, and many other animals make their homes in the preserve. The quarry pools contain the largest concentrations of Red-Spotted Newts in the area. More than 10 miles of blazed trails meander through the property, leading to unique rock formations, scenic vistas, and secret glades. Trails range from easy streamside strolls suitable for families with young children to more rugged trails with some moderately steep sections.
