Forbes State Forest: Quebec Run Wild Area Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Quebec Run Wild Area is a special treat. The entire hike is pretty any time of year. But if you go during late June or July, you will walk through bowers of rhododendron and mountain laurel in bloom. The Quebec Run Wild Area is on the eastern slope of Chestnut Ridge, which is part of the Appalachian Mountain chain. Chestnut Ridge is the westernmost principal anticline of the chain in Pennsylvania. Anticlines are basically the tops of layers of rock that have folded due to geologic forces to form an arch; we commonly call anticlines ridges or mountains."

Good trail. Trail well marked with paint marks. This trail has good bridges over the creeks.
