With the 2020 Walk in Penn’s Woods just two months away we want to share our new approach to this year’s event.

Because there is still a great deal of uncertainty around where our state will be in terms of the status of the pandemic and the best ways to keep everyone safe, we are expanding our offerings of the usual event into something with more individual options.

This October we are making the entire month a Walk in Penn’s Woods! We invite you to create your own woodland adventure. Visit the Find a Woodland Adventure page for a growing collection of opportunities to enjoy Penn’s Woods throughout the month. We are showcasing a few StoryMaps, information for trails to hike in a variety of counties across the state, virtual tours of unique Penn’s Woods forests, and links to State Parks and partners that are continuing to offer formal woodland adventures.

We want to keep all our friends and partners safe, while still enabling the public to learn more about and appreciate Penn’s Woods, and are working towards creative ways to do so.

In the meantime, enjoy the woods while being socially distant but, naturally near.
