Looking for nice hiking areas to take a hike? Choose from these scenic hiking trails:
Francis E. Walter Dam ? An 1,800-acre project, having a small 80 acre reservoir but no Corps-operated recreation facilities. There is a boat launch area (no ramp), although there is a 10 hp limit. Swimming is not permitted. Picnicking, hiking and fishing are available, as is hunting, in season, on adjacent PA Game Commission lands. Whitewater rafting is also available downstream. Information on whitewater releases can be obtained by accessing the Philadelphia District Web site and checking under Francis E. Walter Dam.
