The Buzzard Swamp is a unique place designed and constructed mainly by the hands of men. The 15 man-made ponds were built in a joint partnership between the USDA Forest Service and the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The ponds and wetlands draw an abundance of wildlife. Bear, deer, porcupine, beaver, coyote, turtles, osprey, and the occasional bald eagle are common to this area. The ponds are full of life below the surface as well. Each has a variety of bass, perch, catfish, sunfish, and crappies. So why not bring along a rod?
You’re bound to get lucky at Buzzard Swamp! Highlights: sweet singletrack with a taste of technical, wide open flat stretches; wildlife galore; awesome fishing; great photography opportunities. Tread: everything from singletrack and doubletrack to grassy service road and forest service dirt road. The stretch between miles 6.3 and 7.3 can become wet and swampy. Avoid this area after a rainfall or snowmelt.
