I never knew about the Reserve till 3/20/10 when 2 out of 3 generations were introduced to it and I loved its heritage. But too many people abuse it, evidenced by the insensitively discarded trash, and by the marring of the terrain with vehicles of some sort such as mtn./dirt bikes. 30 some years ago our family began our lifelong love affair with nature, including forays into The Wildlands Conservancy on Orchid Place. I have a photo of 3 of my family members taken by the Morning Call, of the butterfly count in progess June 29, 1980. More education is needed to educate people about its existence and value. And a trail guide would be quite useful, although the blazes do help a bit. Also, there is no entrance from a Nunziata Drive which appears to have disappeared into housing.
My favorite trail right in town. Super easy to get to, but kind of hidden. I had lived in emmaus for a few years and never knew it existed. The trails are all marked clearly except for the Red Trail which can be difficult to find the second half as the markers are at greater distances in the clearing than they are in the woods.
This place is a real treasure for local residents who want to hike in the woods on well marked but somewhat rough trails. The busy Lehigh Valley has a number of good places for walking in nature but this one feels like you are far away from civilization although you arent. Great for exercise, biking, or dog walking.
Great mix use nature area in the Lehigh Valley. Trails are well maintained and marked. Among other things, its a great place to hike with the dog, run, or bike.
Such a great place so close to town. Lets keep it wild. Many miles of hiking trails right in Emmaus with over a 500 ft rise. Did someone say back country skiing?
Beautiful space so close to everything, and the mountain biking trails are unmatched in this area
Great place in the Valley for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and even bouldering.
Great local day hike, lots of trail loops for a variety of distances up to 5+ miles.
Great trails and areas to hike, moderate, easy, and more difficult trails.
