BEACH LAKE, PA — Join National Park Service Ranger Katherine Szupillo on a hike on the Damascus Forest Trail on Saturday, August 24. This easy two-mile hike will explore all that is to be found in the forests of northeastern Pennsylvania. The hike will begin at the Damascus Forest Trailhead at 10:30 a.m. The trailhead is located on MacCubbins Road, Beach Lake. Come enjoy and explore the outdoors, but be prepared with plenty of water, bug spray, and be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots.
Ranger Szupillo has worked for the National Park Service on the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River since 2009, and has a bachelors degree in Biological Sciences and Social Sciences from SUNY Buffalo.
The Damascus Forest Trail is one of six trails featured in the “Take a Hike!” brochure, which gives names, locations, descriptions, and difficulty levels of trails in the Upper Delaware River Valley. It also provides a checklist to keep track of the trails you’ve hiked, which can be turned in upon completion for a Take a Hike! patch.
