Allegheny National Forest opens new ‘Black Bear Trail’ on the Morrison Trail System
The Allegheny National Forest is proud to announce the opening of a new trail segment called the Black Bear Trail.
The Black Bear Trail is a 1.8-mile segment that is connected to the Rimrock Loop trail, which is part of the larger Morrison Trail System, located near the Rimrock Recreation Area on the Bradford Ranger District of the Forest. Black Bear is rated moderate for hiking and riding.
USDA Forest Service Trails Technician Kyle Robb and an eight-person crew from the American Conservation Experience worked to complete this segment of trail in just under two weeks.
The joint crew spent countless hours breaking brush, grading dirt, removing and placing rocks, felling and removing trees, and placing signage throughout the trail.
The trails team will continue trail maintenance and upgrades on the Morrison Trail System for the next three weeks.
Updated maps, as pictured above, will be posted at trail head kiosks and some junctions of the trail system.
