"Part of the larger North Country National Scenic Trail, the Glacier Ridge Trail extends 14.0 miles across Moraine State Park. Within Moraine, the trail travels through pine plantations, mature and regenerating forests, and past a pond; offers views of the expansive Lake Arthur; and provides plenty of opportunities to view wildlife. This particular hike is an out-and-back walk, with a small loop at one end.
Yet Moraine is home to a surprising variety of wildlife. It’s got the usual deer, squirrels, turkeys, and songbirds. Foxes and raccoons are common, too. And don’t be surprised if you see a coyote. Spread all across Pennsylvania these days, coyotes do very well here. Scats full of fruits and berries and—especially after deer season—chunks of hair and hide can be seen right on the trail if you keep your eyes open. To begin this hike, park at the trailhead on North Shore Drive, at the western end of Lake Arthur near the McDanel’s Launch Area."
