Mountain Biking Pennsylvania
by Rob Ginieczki (Falcon Guides)
Kelly’s Run is a beautiful tract of land owned and operated by the Pennsylvania Power and Light utility company. Kelly’s Run itself is a beautiful stream that tumbles down a series of small waterfalls through a deeply cut rock canyon. The ferns, mosses, and other flora that grow here are unique to this location, and the rugged nature of the canyon itself lends the feeling of a more wild and remote place. Highlights: expansive vista over Lake Aldred; short steep climbs and descents; Kelly's Run Natural Area, which is listed as one of the most unique natural features in Pennsylvania; great camping at nearby Otter Creek and Pequea Campgrounds. Tread: a mix of paved road, old woods roads, and some sweet singletrack.
We hiked the trail alongside Kelly’s Run, then took the Pine Tree trail to the Pinnacle and back.
It’s an easy hike and has some great scenery. The part of Kelly’s Run trail that borders Kelly’s run would be tough on a bike because of rocks, roots, trees, etc.
