Quebec Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"There are many beautiful hikes in western Pennsylvania. But perhaps none surpasses this lollipop through the Quebec Run Wild Area on Chestnut Ridge in Fayette County. A wonderful place for primitive camping if you want to backpack, it’s also a great place to go for a day hike, with its beautiful Mill and Quebec Runs. Be sure to bring a camera."

"There are many beautiful hikes in western Pennsylvania, but it’s hard to imagine any surpassing this loop through the Quebec Run Wild Area on Chestnut Ridge. Towering hemlocks, mountain laurel, two exquisite streams, and a variety of wildlife make this walk nothing short of amazing.If there’s a place where you can experience wilderness despite the once-heavy hand of man, Quebec Run Wild Area is it. The nearly 7,500 acres that make up this portion of Forbes State Forest have been extensively logged at least twice, most recently seventy years ago. But you wouldn’t know it to hike here. The wild area—which will never again see permanent development—is, quite simply, one of the most beautiful places in western Pennsylvania."
