In collaboration with the Sullivan County Library, Loyalsock Foundation is hosting a Poetry Walk along the Summit Loop Trail starting in April to celebrate National Poetry Month. The Poetry Walk will feature a combination of published and local, original poems with a focus on nature and outdoor recreation. Poems will be placed along the one-mile walking path, adding a fun literary twist to the outdoors. The poems will be geared towards children and adults alike.

The Summit Loop Trail is located in Laporte Township, along Route 42 between Laporte and Eagles Mere. The Summit Loop Trail is open daily from sunrise to sunset.

Poetry Walks are a version of Story Walks. A Story Walk is a movement and literacy boosting project that places an illustrated children’s book, taken apart and displayed page by page, along a walking route in a community. Anne Ferguson, the genius behind the StoryWalk concept, sums it up nicely with these sentences, which she asks to be posted when creating a StoryWalk: “The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.”
