TRAIL: Gamewire Trail
LENGTH: 5 miles TERRAIN: more difficult
MEET: Sand Spring Day Use Area at Hickory Run State Park - follow the main day use road to the very end, parking near the disc golf kiosk.
We'll hike out the Boulder Field return road to the Gamewire Trail, which starts near the turnpike overpass. From there, the trail meanders through the forest and follows the boundary of a long-gone fence put in place by General Harry Trexler. After passing through the organized group tenting area, we'll make our way back to our starting point.
