Trail shared by Tad Davis

A flat but sometimes very rocky trail paralleling Roaring Run.

Tad Davis

Features Birding · River/Creek · Wildlife

Description

Start at the intersection with Sand Spring and head due west. This trail parallels Roaring Run, very closely at first but then less so as it continues. Watch your footing, but generally this is an easy trail. At the end, it turns into State College Overlook which takes you up to a ridge with a view of State College.
