Description

Park at the Happy Days Lodge parking lot and cross under Route 303, then head out to the corner of the parking lot (look for the kiosk) to find Haskell Run, which offers a pair of bridges, the Mater Dolorosa Cemetery, a wildly diverse array of wildflowers and ramps. Please note that picking wildflowers and ramps is prohibited. If you want more mileage, go the other direction to find Boston Run Trail.

Haskell Run offers a quick creek valley outing with a pair of cool wooden bridges. There is plenty of wildlife to take in here, including smaller woodland creatures like squirrels, chipmunks, and all varieties of birds including woodpeckers. They're all a big reason why these trails tend to get busy. To that end, nothing is better than tackling these trails on a fair-weathered, early-weekend morning.

There is broad appeal to all levels of visitors here. Most of the trail is sure-footed; if you have good boots and good weather, you're likely to linger on the trails to take in all the sights. Having Happy Days Lodge nearby means that trails and special events of all variety can be linked together. Sightseers will love it too, as there are many historical locations to be seen just off the trail.
