Hike by scooter, wheelchair on Saturday



A hike for the disabled is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday, May 26, at French Creek State Park, Berks County.


Participants can enjoy the scenery of Hopewell Lake as they take a nature tour along handicapped-accessible trails. There will be a talk about wildlife, native trees and shrubs, as well as the history of French Creek State Park and the nearby historic site, Hopewell Furnace.


The hike is not difficult although it is one mile long and takes two hours. Meeting place is the playground behind the French Creek State Park main office at 845 Park Rd., Elverson, Pa. 19520.


Participants should bring water, a snack and binoculars, and dress for the weather. Family members are welcome. Handicapped restrooms are available along the way.
