The sprawling grounds around Falling Rock are an excellent place to jog. Feel free to explore the grounds by making up your own path, or the front desk can provide a map with three routes you can take. The provided routes start at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort’s Adventure Center, so call a shuttle to take you there or extend your run by jogging over. If it’s a trail run you’re in the mood for, the 1.7-mile yellow loop is the shortest run and takes you through the forest and grassy fields around the hotel. The orange loop is a bit longer at 3.6 miles, and acts as a tour of the property, passing golf courses, zoo animals and a piece of the Berlin Wall. The last loop is the longest — four miles — and is all on paved road. As you jog, make sure you notice the vintage airplane hanger and garage of classic cars.
Nature surrounds you at the 2,000 acre Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands. Hiking, running and biking are all highly popular throughout property. The resort has designated three trails loops (1.7 mile, 3.6 mile and 4 mile) with proper markings. These trails, which are gravel or paved depending on your trail selection, are all well kept. All offer scenic or wooded views and pass by several unique pieces from the $45 million Hardy Family Art Collection and a number of animal habitats. Trail Maps are available.
