Peninsula Trail Loop
The landscape of The Alleghenies is home to a variety of northern hardwoods and this hike explores a mixture of these throughout its length. Along the way, the route passes through mature and pole stage northern hardwoods and oaks and ends in an area of herbaceous plants more common in areas much farther north. In 1996, a tornado skimmed its way across the peninsula leaving a path of downed trees in its wake, many of which can still be seen today. The hike can be modified by taking a boat to the end of the peninsula across from the Glendale Dam and trekking back to Muskrat Beach or the Prince Gallitzin Marina.
