About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Trails & Trees Environmental Center sits on 26 acres of land owned by the Mechanicsburg Area School District. It is a unique park to explore the beauty of Pennsylvania’s forests and escape into nature.

Five trails enter the woods from along the tree line, all of which lead to the stream at the bottom of the ravine.  If you walk east on any one of the trails from the ravine, you end up at the Middle School. If you walk west, you will come out at the pavilion/farmhouse. Several miles of trails and four teaching stations were constructed by 25 different Boy Scouts as their projects to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.

Distance varies, based on which trails you take. This is not a stroller friendly hike due to incline. At the bottom of the ravine, this trail tends to be quite mucky after any rain or snow melt.

About The Guide

Hike it Baby Family Trail Guide is an online resource to help families with children source trails that little legs can hike and parents can feel comfortable with. Hike details are sourced and have been hiked by families who participate in our community. Our contributors do their best to give you all the details they can, but if something is missed, you can reach out to the contributor and offer suggestions for them to add to make it a better trail description for all. This guide was built with a generous 3-year partnership with L.L Bean. Like Hike it Baby, L.L Bean believes that helping get families into nature from birth on is key to healthier, happier communities.
