“Deer Creek Trail to North Susquehanna Ridge Trail to Rock Run Mill and back to the start.”— Joe Scalies
The first mile of the Susquehanna Ridge Trail again ascends until it sharply descends down to a creek crossing at about mile 3.5. Once across the creek, make a left at the road and follow that to Rock Run Road, Stafford Rd and Rock Run Mill.
At the intersection of Stafford Road is another bathroom, and historic Rock Run Mill, along with views of the Susquehanna River. The last mile and a half is mostly flat road.
