Foxburg, Clarion County & Parker Game Lands – Bear Creek Area, Butler County
Leader: Dianne Machesney
We will walk a nice paved trail that goes along the Allegheny River for about a mile and then turn back. Plan to have lunch at the Foxburg Inn; good food at decent prices and a glass walled dining room overlooking the river. After lunch, we will travel south about 3 miles to the Bear Creek area in the Parker Game Lands. We will walk along the road looking for wildflowers on the banks.
Directions: From Pittsburgh, travel PA 8 north to Butler. In downtown Butler, turn right onto Cunningham St to pick up PA 68 east. Travel PA 68 east for 1.5 mile to pick up PA 38 N. Continue on PA 38 N for 21 miles to PA 58. Turn right onto PA58 and continue about 7 miles to the Foxburg Bridge over the Allegheny River. Take first right after the bridge into the parking lot. Go to the far end and park. If using GPS, use the address for the Foxburg Inn, 20 Main Street, Foxburg, PA 16036.
