"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. This area is open to hunting, so wear orange during hunting season." Read more

Excellent trail. Suprising that a trail this close to New Castle, Butler, and Pittsburgh is this wilderness like. After the marina is very secluded. Full 14 miles is worth the trek.
