Tunnel Spur Drive Professional Reviews and Guides

"LAs with many of the trails and roadways in Pennsylvania, this historic route follows part of an old Native American foot trail called the Penns Creek Indian Path. As Penns Valley was settled and the timber industry grew, a railroad was built in 1879 along Penns Creek to link other smaller mountain valley timber railroads.

Highlights: outstanding views from Penns View on Poe Mountain, two historic railroad tunnels, rock climbing, historic railroad grade, tubing at the oxbow on Penns Creek, world class trout fishing on the famous Penns Creek, Poe Paddy and Poe Valley State Park amenities, which include swimming, fishing, boat rentals, camping, and food concessions. Tread: gnarly, rocky singletrack and rutted old woods road linked with fast and smooth forest roads, ATV trails, and cinder-covered old railroad grade."
