NEVERSINK MOUNTAIN TRAIL UPDATE

Please note that MetEd will be replacing utility towers on Neversink Mountain, which also requires vegetation mowing, tree trimming, and access construction. Berks Nature recommends that trail users avoid the areas closest to this construction and the electrical transmission line right of way, which includes the St. Lawrence Trail, Promenade Trail, and southern portion of the Neversink Trail.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization, Berks Nature has been serving the Berks County community since 1974. Land preservation, water protection, trail management, community gardens, education programs, State of the Environment, Eco-Camp and our valued partnerships are at the center of Berks Nature’s work every day.

We hope you join us by becoming a Champion of Nature. You’ll enjoy exclusive benefits, while supporting programs that help connect people to nature and maintain the natural beauty of Berks County.

“In 2011 I walked about 200 miles and lost about 70lbs on trails throughout PA and MD. I drove all over finding trails new to me. Yesterday a friend and I hiked the Gravity Trail (right in my own back yard.) What a gem of greater Reading! Beautiful job. There were times I could hardly believe I was so close to the city.”

Thank you so much for having the 7th grade students of Kutztown visit the Burkholder farm. This opportunity was an incredibly eye opening experience for all involved. Teaching about farming practices, sustainability, clean water and buying locally is one thing, but actually seeing it in action is what changes the mind frame.
