Description

Use the Seven Mile Connector off Remington Access Road to access this trailhead, or enter using the Pocowanache to Remington Rd Connector for a singletrack climb. If starting off Seven Mile Connector, head left at the trail sign for a hard climb with a technical, rocky downhill.

To the left you'll climb through some loose rocky sections with some higher grades for about 3/4 mile. At the top, stop at the vista and enjoy some views of the WIlliamsport area. Then get back on the trail and navigate some tricky rock sections on your descent.

If you choose to go right at the sign (using Seven Mile Connector), you'll enjoy a meandering dirt singletrack with some dips, roots, and a small stone wall to go over. After about 1/2 mile, you can exit onto Remington Access Road or you can start an extremely tough climb for not only the grade, but the rocks as well. This is a tough climb for the majority of people. At about 1 1/4 mile you'll see the vista on your right; be sure to stop and take some pictures. From there, it is a slightly loose rocky descent but not nearly as technical as it would be to go the other way.

The portion from the sign to the Remington gets a lot of downhill bike traffic.
