Pasold Farm Nature Preserve

Highlights of this preserve include hay-scented ferns (which smell like freshly mown hay), the remains of a farm’s springhouse, ancient oaks and an old white pine known as the “kissing tree,” beautiful views of the Brodhead Creek, a community garden, stone walls built by farmers long ago, and boulders dropped in less orderly fashion by glaciers even longer ago.

The network of trails on the 64-acre property is well marked with blue blazes. Hiking is moderately difficult with one short, steep climb, and one downed tree to be clambered over. Parts are wet. Wear sturdy boots or shoes.

Parking area is on Pasold Farm Drive (off Spruce Cabin Road in Canadensis, Pennsylvania). Take Route 447 to Spruce Cabin Road. Go 50 feet, cross the bridge. Pasold Farm Drive is on your right. Parking for up to eight cars. The trail is blazed in blue and starts to the right of the information sign.
