Todd Nature Reserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Military battles can change history, as can earthquakes, plagues, and inventions. So, too, can the tiniest ripples, as the existence of Todd Nature Reserve attests. In the 1880s, a teenage W. E. Clyde Todd was studying birds on his grandparents’ farm near Sarver. He spotted a nesting magnolia warbler. The discovery had significance; previously, no one realized the birds nested so far south.

Todd Nature Reserve is the older—if lesser well known—of two properties owned by the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. This hike through the 176-acre woodland lets you experience streams shaded by dark hemlocks, boulder fields, and a pond banked by regenerating forest."

A nice area with well marked trails. A lot of short trails but one can spend as much time as you want exploring the area. I usually go out there around 3-4 Times a year. And on week days one seldom meet others. Except Friday mornings when there is a guided tour.
