Manny is our first carved stamp--so it's a little primitive, but that is appropriate for a mammoth. Manny is hibernating in Wolf Run Regional Park. The parking area is located on Yauger Road, east of Upper Gilchrist Road. The terrain includes some steep paths but this is a fun trail area because of it. The trail splits almost immediately off the parking lot. Take the left trail, Woodlands Trail. The path snakes around down the hill. Your first landmark is a fairly small tree that the path abruptly turns around. You’ll know this is the right tree if you look to your left where a rock is embedded in the roots of a neighboring larger tree. Continuing on the trail, you can see ahead of you that the path starts to level out heading to the right. Just as it swings to the right there is a fallen tree where the mid-section has been removed across the path. Start counting from here. About 35 steps from the fallen tree there is a broken-off stump on the left. Manny is hiding at the base of this stump.
