Need to Know
To access this trailhead, you'll drive back Little Bear Creek Access Road
from Route 87 approximately 1.5 miles. There is space to park along the shoulder of theroad. A trailhead marker is at the driveway into a large hunting camp. You'll walk up the driveway, past the large camp on your left and see where the trail heads into the woods towards Painter Creek.
The grade of this entire trail is very gradual and for the most part, is very well marked. Like most trails in the area, there are sections that are somewhat rocky/rutted so watch your footing.
Very scenic Pennsylvania hardwoods as you meander along the creek. At the end of the trail, there is a junction with the Loyalsock Trail
and you can hook up with a variety of other routes like the LT and Smiths Knob Trail
