For about six weeks nature cooks up its own sweet delights within sugar maple trees as the sap begins to flow, ready to be tapped for making sugar and syrup. The weather needs a combination of below freezing temperatures at night and above freezing temperatures during the day that causes the maple sap to flow.
Visitors can try tapping a tree, see maple syrup and candy making and learn about different types of maple syrup. There are many children’s activities and also delicious PA maple products are for sale. Sponsored by Visit Hershey & Harrisburg Sweet Treat Trail.
