This educational and informational trail will be the newest addition to Gobbler’s Knob. It is almost a half of a mile in length.
Along the trail, the metal art showcased for trail patrons. The metal art is created and donated by Jeff Tech, a local trade school, each year on Groundhog Day.
The flora and fauna will be identified by markers. The GHC is working with the PASD Biology students to complete this portion of the project.
Also throughout the trail, there is signage that gives the history of Groundhog Day, the Inner Circle, Punxsutawney Phil and groundhog facts, and more. These signs include smart phone technology to enhance the visitors’ experience.
The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club is currently planning the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Gobbler’s Knob Trail. Along with the ribbon cutting, there will be Groundhog Games for Children 12 and Under, a Phil Appearance, and Non-Profit Showcase!
This great event is called “A Day at the Knob”. The date is Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Gobbler’s Knob from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
