Trexler Nature Preserve Loop Hike
A hike through the wilds of the Trexler Game Preserve
UPDATE: I've been made aware (thanks, Kerry!) that there is a significant project underway to remove invasive growth throughout the park and while trails are still passable they are also littered with small branches and debris. Please be aware of this as you consider your participation in this hike. You can reference the park website for additional information: https://www.lehighcounty.org/Community/Trexler-Nature-Preserve/Our-Progress/Invasive-Plant-Removal. This loop hike will explore the northern portions of the Game Preserve, beginning at the Trexler Environmental Center, following the Border Trail through the Central Range to the North Range, then taking a variety of trails to explore the lesser-traveled sections of the park, returning to the Central Range and concluding on several trails that run along the Jordan Creek. There will be several long, steep climbs, multiple scenic overlooks, and likely buffalo and elk sightings. Early bailout options will be available. Wear sturdy hiking boots and bring at least 2 liters of water, lunch and snacks. Rain cancels.
