Varden Conservation Area

The gift of veterinarian Dr. Mead Shaffer, the 343-acre Varden Conservation Area is in Wayne County. This magnanimous gift of land is a pristine area in a once-remote section of the state that now is beginning to feel the pressure of development. It will be protected and used for future generations as a respite from daily life, and a place to learn about our wonderful natural history. The property will be managed through Promised Land State Park, Pike County.

There are excellent short hikes available in the Varden Conservation Area, so this can be a good starter hike, or family hike location.
