Splash Dam Hollow Professional Review and Guide

"This hike gives you a taste of a popular 85-mile backpacking trail. It starts out on the Susquehannock Trail System but soon connects with lesser-used trails as it descends one hollow and meets Splash Dam Stream, whose banks are now overgrown and whose already marshy areas are aggravated by beaver dams. The trail leads up out of a second hollow to the ridgeline, where you reconnect with the main trail.

The Susquehannock Trail System (STS) is a popular 85-mile backpacking trail that runs through the Susquehannock State Forest—262,000 acres of deeply cut ravines and plateaus. The trail passes through Lyman Sun, Patterson, Cherry Springs, and Ole Bull State Parks, with Ole Bull being the southern gateway. The STS is well maintained and well marked with orange blazes. In order to do a loop, our hike encompasses three lesser-used trails that are, at some points, a little overgrown. When you begin on the STS, you can sign in at the logbook station and then start out on the White Line Trail.
Follow the STS across a high plateau and into a deep ravine. This forest was logged extensively in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and from the trail you can see evidence of the clear-cutting."
