  • Explore the wild by joining Eliza in a moderate 10 mile hike in Pennsylvania’s Quebec Run Wild Area. A short 35 minutes away from Morgantown, Quebec Run has a wonderfully developed system of trails along the eastern slope of the Chestnut Ridge.

    Hike Description/Terrain: Meet at the Quebec Run Wild Area West Trailhead at 8:45AM. Our 5 hour long hike will take us from the top of the Chestnut Ridge into the valley of Mill Run and back. There are steep and rocky sections throughout, but also level and soft sections. It is a great variety! We will stop for a lunch break along beautiful Mill Run, with the optional opportunity of exploring historic mill ruins.

    Distance/Duration: Around 10 miles; approximately 5 hours. We will hike at a moderate pace, pausing at the top of hills and at trail junctions to make sure that no one is left behind. Due to the distance and difficulty of the trail, this hike is rated as Moderate (level 5 of 10, with 1 being the easiest and 10 being the hardest). No beginners, no kids, some teens, hiking footwear/attire required, water/snacks required.

    Meeting Time: We will meet at 8:45AM and begin hiking at 9AM.
