“A rocky route, running along a small stream. This loop uses beautiful trails two miles from State College, PA.”— Jared Yarnall-Schane
Family Friendly Stay on the Lower Trail with your kids, or those that may not be able to make it uphill.
Then turn right onto the Green Shoot trail connector. You'll exit that trail and turn right onto Lower Trail to go back to the access point.
Make sure you take a moment to listen to the babbling water, and soak in the scent of the hemlock and pine trees that surround you. You'll even pass the ruins of an old stone house or mill!
