Explore Poe Paddy Tunnel and beyond this Sunday & Wednesday!

– by Ellie Aungst

It's tunnel time!

This Sunday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 15 we'll be joining Penns Valley Conservation Association and Penns Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited at Poe Paddy Tunnel for guided walks and fly fishing demonstrations along Penns Creek. Depending on where you are coming from, the drive out to this location will take between 30-45 minutes, so please double check your directions before leaving home as cell service is unreliable around this destination. The views as you enter the Poe Paddy State Park area are gorgeous and perfect for rolling your window down to enjoy the cool forest air and breeze!

Make a day of it!

Before or after enjoying a guided nature walk with us, you might want to consider stopping at Poe Valley State Park where there is a large swimming beach with public restrooms/changing areas and concession stand. You can follow Poe Paddy Drive for approximately four miles (12 minute drive) to get to the swimming and picnic area.
