Ferncliff Wildflower & Wildlife Preserve is a 1.7 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Drumore Township, Pennsylvania that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
Ferncliff Wildflower and Wildlife Preserve is one of only approximately 600 National Natural Landmark sites. It has been recognized as a National Natural Landmark because of the exceptional old growth forest that has been maintained there.
The main trail from the lot to the river is easy and at one point was a road. The vista on to the river from the railroad tracks is quite beautiful and so is the creek. Trail beyond that is completely overgrown and eroded, borderline dangerous and to be honest without much to see.
Low traffic hiking spot along a creek. Trail was a little over grown in spots, but that is to be expected. We enjoyed a few paw paws from some trees we found. They were so good. Mid to late September is the time for them.
