“A quiet hike with views of the Susquehanna River.”— Liz Stevens
Family Friendly Not sure if little kids could handle the whole trail, but they would enjoy the first stretch to the waterfall.
The obstacles are well worth the trouble as this is a particularly nice section featuring woods, a waterfall, and several good viewpoints over the river and the dam to the north.
Otherwise, the singletrack follows the rolling terrain through the shaded woods until it briefly overlaps a gravel road a few miles ahead. After the road, hikers are rewarded with a bamboo tunnel that hangs low over the trail.
Look for a large clearing after the second stream crossing. This makes a great spot to relax and enjoy a snack or lunch before finishing the final gradual climb of the hike.
