There is one world-class view of Pennsylvania’s Pine Creek Gorge on this section of the West Rim Trail—and legions of hikers consider the climb out of the gorge worth it. Along the way to the top, there are views of Pine Creek and sparkling mountain waterfalls. The final leg is on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. This hike comprises sections of two of the state’s most popular backpacking trails: the West Rim and the Mid State Trails. The West Rim Trail stretches 30 miles along the western rim of Pine Creek Gorge—Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon. The Mid State Trail runs from the Pennsylvania-Maryland border south of Everett to its connection with the West Rim Trail near Bohen Run in the north. Regardless of where you enter this gorge, you’ll be struck by the sheer strength of the force that turned a mountain plateau into a corrugated landscape that, seen from an adjoining mountain peak, looks like a giant green washboard.
