A delightful spot to experience the beauty of Quehanna Wild Area

Distance: You pick! Take a short stroll to a pleasant shaded viewing area or longer hike lasting all day. Less than one mile or several miles - it's up to you.

Access: Large parking area at the intersection of Wykoff Run Road and Quehanna Highway, roughly 60 miles (one hour drive) from State College, PA. 

Hoover Farm Viewing Area Trail: Quehanna

The Hoover Farm Viewing Area has something for everyone interested in exploring Quehanna. Visitors love this destination because it is a great place to experience the wild beauty of Quehanna, spend some time in hopes of seeing, photographing, or hearing elk and other wildlife, and just getting away from the hustle of everyday life.

The viewing area has amenities: informational kiosks and a shaded, handicapped-accessible wildlife viewing blind a short walk from the parking area and non-flush toilets.

Looking for a longer adventure? Bicyclists and hikers can utilize the red blazed Riddle Road to reach a small parking area on Reactor Road. From here, hikers can walk David Lewis Trail back to the parking lot, which makes a nice 2-3 mile loop (no bikes are allowed on the David Lewis Trail).

Adventurous hikers looking for more miles can turn left at the Reactor Road parking area, and follow the yellow blazed trail along Panther Run, before turning left again on Bellefonte Posse Trail. Be sure to turn left once again on the red blazed trail, which leads through the trees around the managed wildlife food plot. One final left turn leads hikers in between the food plot and the Quehanna Highway before reaching the Hoover Dam Viewing Area Parking Lot. Bring your Moshannon-Quehanna Map to reference during your adventure.

We take our mapmaking pretty so seriously over here at Purple Lizard Maps, that we often hike and bike most of the trails found on our maps. We also drive 98% of the roads that are found on our maps. For our most recent project, we truly went overboard by renting an off-the-grid cabin in the middle of Monongahela National Forest for a full week of recon fieldwork. Learn all about our adventures and discoveries below!

There is so much wilderness to explore on the Moshannon-Quehanna Lizard Map it's hard to decide where to start! One easy place to start is with two great trails along the Quehanna Highway. The Lincoln and Teaberry Trail loops can be your destination hike or a side-hike on your way to see the elk herd at Benezette.

There are so many family friendly hikes and places to explore in Moshannon/Quehanna! One our our favorite is Black Moshannon Bog Natural Area. This short walk is a wonderful opportunity for young minds to explore and experience rare plant and bird species on the Allegheny Plateau.
