Strawberry Hill's Winter Fitness Hike. Hike your way to better health and stave off the cold-weather blues with guided Winter Fitness Hikes, sponsored by Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve and Healthy Adams County! Hiking is a great aerobic activity.

These fully-guided hikes are open to beginner and seasoned hikers; we will take breaks as necessary and maintain a moderate group pace. Safety and support are top priorities, and hikers will practice Leave No Trace outdoor ethics.

This 0.75 mile trail in Michaux State Forest contains some steep climbs. The entire park can be viewed from the Pole Steeple Overlook which is a quartzite rock outcropping. The return is either back down the 0.75 mile steep trail or via the less steep but twice as long Appalachian Trail and Railroad Bed Road. The trail begins at the Pole Steeple parking lot, along the Railroad Bed Road by Laurel Lake, and proceeds up Piney Mountain to the rocky overlook. Hike is 1.5-3 miles.
