Nature…Hiking…Adventures – Lancaster County PA

Nature in Lancaster County is more than visiting a farm or riding along country roads.  Visitors come to Lancaster County for a variety of reasons…to learn about the Amish culture, outlet shopping, theater, art & music, education, farmers markets, antiques…the list goes on and on.  Sometimes it never occurs to travelers what spectacular attractions Mother Nature has to offer.  We took a hike through Tucquan Glen and Pyfer Nature Preserve photographing much of this overlooked natural attraction.  Two hundred and fifty six photos to be exact.  No…the You Tube Video does not have that many photos.  We chose a few of our favorites, just enough to give you a taste of what can be experienced on the 14.8 acres and 2.4 mile round trip hike.  Join us as we tempt you to put down your cellphone, ipad, ipod, or whatever electronic device that is keeping you from exploring the natural beauty of Lancaster County.  This is a direct link to Tucquan Glen and Pyfer Nature Preserve with a printable map for your convenience:    and an excerpt from Lancaster Conservancy page:

This is perhaps the most pristine and scenic of the seven ravines which open into the Susquehanna River in this area. A rhododendron and hemlock canopied trail follows Tucquan Creek from River Road to the Susquehanna River. The initial two-thirds of this glen is beautiful and peaceful; the lower glen is wild and rugged.

and Remember…the Apple Bin Inn is here for you to plan, rest, and refresh for your adventure.
