Trail Description

Tucquan Glen is a 338-acre nature preserve containing a tributary to the Susquehanna River. This area, located in Martic Township, is one of the most popular natural areas in Lancaster County. The first parcel of the Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve was a 97 acre acquired in 1983. Since that time, the Conservancy has acquired many more parcels to add to the preserve. This is perhaps the most pristine and scenic of the seven ravines which open into the Susquehanna River in this area. A rhododendron and hemlock canopied trail follows Tucquan Creek from River Road to the Susquehanna River. The initial two-thirds of this glen is beautiful and peaceful; the lower glen is wild and rugged. There are two trails that start at their respective parking lots and follow the creek all the way down to the river. Tucquan Creek is a designated Pennsylvania Wild and Scenic River. The Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve is home to two popular bouldering areas.
