Mountain Streams Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike uses a number of trails that are part of the Mountain Streams trail system in Forbes State Forest. Sights along the way include Indian Creek, a very good trout stream (though in places you have to bushwhack to get to it), some regenerating forests that are prime country for black bears, and even a bit of pastoral farm country.
This is a hike with ties to the area’s industrial past. At one time, several railroads operated in this area, carrying coal and timber out of the Laurel Highlands. You won’t find any trains now; those days are gone. The old rail grades still exist, however, as footpaths. One of them forms a major part of this hike."
