This hike makes a circuit through Pennsylvania State Game Land 210, following open trails to the south before heading to the north. At about 6 miles, the open trails give way to a small footpath that descends into East Branch Rattling Creek. The hike follows an old path along the creek for a mile and then follows a good trail back south along Nine O’Clock Run. It finishes with a couple of miles of gentle walking on Greenland Road.
