Almost all of Potter County, Pennsylvania, was clear-cut in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but the second-growth forest surrounding the Susquehannock Trail System (STS) will take your breath away with its lush growth, woodland variety, unrelenting beauty, and abundance of wildlife. Leave the workaday world far behind and ramble along some of the most isolated territory in the Mid-Atlantic, whether you’re out for a week or a long weekend.
