After summer, rainbow colored leaves and cooler temps invite hikers to return to the forest to experience Pennsylvania's trails in a whole new way. November naturally reminds us of gratitude and warmth among friends and family. Meet welcoming communities of outdoor enthusiasts by trying a group hike with Keystone Trails Association or a local Pennsylvania hiking or trail club!
