The Pennsylvania Game Commission will not be holding a Stony Valley driving tour this fall. Instead, a 6-mile tour of State Game Lands #210 in Dauphin County will be offered.
“The State Game Lands 211 Driving Tour will not be conducted this year in order to direct the public to the extensive habitat improvement projects the agency has been conducting on SGL 210,” said Pennsylvania Game Commission communications director Travis Lau in an email to LebTown.
The SGL #210 tour will begin near the intersection of Greenland Road and Berry Mountain Road, approximately two miles south of the Borough of Williamstown, and proceed west through game lands before existing on Powell’s Valley Road. Lau said that ongoing wildlife habitat work will be highlighted by game commission staff along the way.
Berks County State Game Lands #110 will also be available for drive-through tours. The route begins at the Mountain Road gate approximately five miles west of the Borough of Hamburg and ends at the State Route 183 gate, four miles north of Strausstown.
The free driving tours will be held on Sunday, Oct. 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are only open to licensed highway vehicles only (no off-road vehicles permitted).
