The 1,025-acre Boyd Big Tree Preserve Conservation Area is one of the newest Pennsylvania state parks. The park straddles Blue Mountain and is the habitat of large trees of numerous species, which are homes for deep forests birds, especially warblers. In the summer and fall, the old field is filled with blooming wildflowers like butterfly weed. In late-July and early-August, the flowers attract field birds and many varieties of butterflies.

A nice moderately challenging trail. Probably the second most difficult trail in the conservation area next to the janie trail.

First time here- great hike. Multiple "named" trails- very well marked- paths well maintained and clear. Lots of trail options depending on the distance and difficulty you're looking for. Main parking lot had restrooms and water fountains. Will definitely return.

Nice hike. I have been on every trail at Boyd and this one is as good as most of them. I prefer going off trail but this trail is a good one.
