Blueberry Meadows features its private Kickyís Ridge groomed trail complex. Itís hilly, but one can look forward to an invigorating experience and the chance to see many varieties of wildlife. Deer, bear, fox, grouse and turkey as well as many varieties of smaller mammals are year round residents in the forests. From April through September, bats, songbirds, flycatchers, woodpeckers, doves, hawks and owls spend their summers with us. As the Native American hunter of three centuries ago could testify, the quiet and vigilant hiker is more successful at seeing our furry neighbors. Because of the elevation, there are no rattlesnakes, poison oak or poison ivy. Biting insects are far less abundant than found in lower lying areas.
Nearby are the Gallitzin State Forest Trails, including Wolf Rocks Trail, Bog and Boulder Path, Fishermanís Path, the John P. Saylor Trail, and the 42 kilometer Lost Turkey Trail that winds through the rugged wilderness separating Ogletown from Blue Knob. Local wags attribute the name, Lost Turkey, to the Youth Conservation Service workers who became lost while helping to construct the trail.
