Allegheny Plateau Scenic Drive: From Lock Haven to Sweden Valley Professional Review and Guide
"This unhurried 65.5-mile drive explores the Pennsylvania Black Forest–Allegheny Plateau country, snaring rim views and visiting fire towers and remote forest parks. This north-central Pennsylvania drive lazily curls between two U.S. Highways for a superb woodland wander. It starts on the banks of the West Branch Susquehanna River in historic Lock Haven and swings north through and along the edge of three state forests: Sproul, Tiadaghton, and Susquehannock.
Atop the Allegheny Plateau, the tour delivers fine views spanning the Black Forest, Pine Creek drainage, and neighboring ridges. Vertigo-inducing, open-cage fire towers and peaceful state parks complete the tour package. Special attractions: Heisey Museum; Cherry Springs and Patterson state parks; mountain views; autumn foliage; mountain laurel; hiking, fishing, relaxing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
