Interest Rates Begin to Decrease Heading Into 2024

2023 Interest Rates Double Over Previous Years

Interest rates for 2023 were the highest the United States has seen since the 1990’s. We entered 2023 with interest rates above 6% only to see rates soar to above 7% in late October – more than double their historic lows seen in 2020 and 2021.

This 4.5 mile, moderately rated trail leads hikers along a shaded forest road, opening to gorgeous views as the trail reaches Pennsylvania Creek. In the earlier hours of the day, it is possible to enjoy this trail with only micro spikes, if the trail is already packed down, however on days with fresh snowfall or in the later hours, snowshoes or cross-country skis are needed to avoid post holing. Dogs are welcome on this trail and must remain on leash.
