Post Thanksgiving Day Hike

Date(s) - Fri Nov 23, 2018

Alfarata Station Trail Head


Going shopping to find all those great Black Friday sales? Follow up your morning of shopping with an afternoon hike on the Lower Trail! After searching for great deals and bargains, you can search for plants going to seed for winter while listening to the sounds of the river. Meet in the Alfarata Station Trailhead parking lot on Main Street in Alexandria at 1pm. We’ll carpool from Alfarata to the Mount Etna Trailhead and then hike approximately five leisurely miles on this rail trail along the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River back to Alfarata. After the hike, we can gather at Paesano’s for food and drink (but definitely not more turkey and pumpkin pie)! If you need more information or have questions, contact trip leader, Kristin Joivell, at 814-386-6267 or email [email protected]
