This is admittedly the farthest flung hike from Pittsburgh. But it’s an easy drive up Interstate 79 and such a unique place that it had to be included in this guide. Walking this hike will not only give you a look at one of the country’s largest inland lakes, but it will take you over ground that, 100 years ago, was under water. There’s nowhere else in Pennsylvania like it.
