Located in the Allegheny Highland Plateau, this route flows through rugged singletrack, rubbly ATV trail, and fast forest roads. The trail utilizes parts of the 35-mile Susquehannock All Terrain Vehicle Trail and a fresh-cut cross-country ski trail. The first few miles are the most challenging and offer a diverse array of surfaces including loam, rock, and grass. Unfortunately this stretch of singletrack takes many obscure turns and is very poorly marked.
A watchful eye and good woods sense will help keep you in the forest and on the right path. If your route-finding skills are a bit rusty and you become frustrated with this poorly marked trail, have no worries. Highlights: five long, hard miles of singletrack; mountaintop views; Pennsylvania Lumber Museum; trout fishing on Splash Dam Branch of Lyman Run; nearby Lyman Run State Park. Tread: rocky singletrack, old woods roads, forest roads, and ATV trail. The surfaces vary from loam, rock, grass, and sand to hardpacked dirt.
