This great hike follows several of the multi-use trails through the Haldeman Tract of the Weiser State Forest. It begins at the Minnich Hit Picnic Area and follows the Minnich Hit Trail northwest to the Matter Trail. Heading west, the Matter Trail takes you to the end of Wolf Pond Road, where you can walk out to the hang glider launch area for an outstanding view. The hike then continues south and east near the boundary of the Haldeman Tract for several miles until it reaches the Grimm Trail, about a half-mile south of the trailhead.
