Marvelous little loop trail for forest bathing (google it. It’s a thing). Some mud, lots of mosquitoes-be prepared. Very easy walk through some old growth forest and some rhododendron tunnels. Perfect for young kids.

When the rhododendrons are in bloom this trail is breathtaking! This trail has it all: woods, water, wildlife. A truly lovely short hike.

The actual Alan Seeger loop is only .8 miles. But it is absolutely beautiful. Beautiful old growth Hemlock, countless native rhododendrum, and stone creek , make up this hike. I would be sure to wear higher boots because you will get you feet wet. In some areas the trail was flooded up to my shins this evening. Also this trail is not blazed, so just use your eye and it's pretty easy to stay on track. Especially with the rhododendrum actually forming tunnels over the trail in some placed, makes it difficult to go to far off.

This is maybe two miles? All trails is letting me down the more I look at the hikes I have done in reference to what is said here.... all in all, it's a gorgeous trail that you can break off of and hop on the mid state toward detwiler run which is more wild and secluded. Be prepared to see some timber rattlers and other amphibious creatures :)

Short walk in old growth stand with native rhododendron. While several old trees have been lost in recent years, still worth a trip- especially when rhododendron in bloom.

Unforgettable little trail. Wish it were about four times longer, though. Still no snow on Jan 2 so my parents and I walked it.

If you find yourself anywhere near this reserve, it is unlike any other chunk of forest in 70 miles. Bear Meadows is just north and is stunning as well. Don't pass up. Beautiful creeks and never clear cut, ancient looking forest. Too small but one of my favorite places in all of Rothrock SP.
