Stroll Through A Lush Forested Area On The Owl Creek Reservoir Trail In Pennsylvania
An hour or two outdoors can do so much for the soul, can’t it? Even if we’re having a lousy day, we can spend a bit of time in the sunshine, drinking in the fresh air, and listening to the still of nature as our mood steadily improves. Owl Creek Reservoir Trail in Pennsylvania provides a picture-perfect way to spend a relaxing hour or so, and it’s one of those trails that you can easily explore any time of the year.
You'll only need about an hour or so, depending on how fast you walk, for your trek along the two-mile Owl Creek Reservoir Trail in Tamaqua.
The easy trail usually doesn't get very busy, making it an ideal choice if you're craving a bit of peace and quiet among nature and wildlife.
Much of the gravel path is flanked by towering forest trees, so you don't have to worry too much about the heat of the sun on hot summer days.
You probably want to wear a pair of comfy walking shoes; bring enough water to keep you hydrated, and lather on the bug spray, especially in the warmer months.
The picturesque path promises beautiful views of the reservoir, which is particularly pretty when sunbeams bounce off of the water.
Keep an eye out for local wildlife - ducks, geese, snakes, and turtles - as you travel along the loop trail. You might even want to bring a picnic along; the area has several picnic tables.
The trail is easy no matter your age or skill level, making this one of those hikes you'll definitely want to try during each of the four seasons.
The reservoir itself is a fun spot for spending the day. It offers both boating and fishing, and biking's also a popular activity.
