Purple Lizard Maps - Scotia (Penn State)
In partnership with Clearwater Conservancy, this map features Game Commission and community park trails plus the historical legacy of the iron ore industry.
Scotia - technically called Pennsylvania State Game Lands #176 - but referred to by locals as The Barrens, Scotia, or the Scotia Barrens. This is a place with many wonders - otherworldly in places, and echoing of a deep history well worth exploring. This map features a modern day trail map on one side and an 1892 historical map of Scotia on the other side with photos both new and old. The history of iron ore mining, and the communities that lived and worked in this area echo throughout the landscape.
Lizard Maps are durable, waterproof, and give you the big picture – the map opens to 24” x 36” and folds easily to 4” x 8” to fit in your back pocket. The Scotia Lizard Map scale is 1:16,075. Includes both lat./lon. and UTM coordinate systems.
This is a hyper-local map, which is different than the other Lizard Maps. Unlike our maps of larger State Forest landscapes over 100,000 acres, this map covers about 7,000 acres of public land in the State College, PA area.
