Hiking and Biking at Wintergreen Gorge in Erie PA

Entrance to Wintergreen Gorge through Penn State BehrendEarlier this year, I checked out a section of Wintergreen Gorge in Harborcreek PA–hiking at this time of year, but it looks like it would be great for biking as well.   We started in the parking lot at Penn State Behrends but the main trail starts at a parking lot off Cooper Road, east of Four Mile Creek. Parking is definitely easier here on the weekends or when school is not in session.

 

Goal on disk golf courseIt is a paved path, that runs along Map of disk golf coursesome of the athletic fields for the ollege, and includes some great views of rushing water, forest…and a marked course for disk golf or Frisbee golf.  There is a bridge to cross the highway, and the trail runs all the way to the Bayfront.

Total distance to and back is about 2.5miles.  Along the way you will also pass the Wintergreen Gorge Cemetery…and legend has it that there are ghosts of a boy and his dog that are sighted on the trail in this area.
