Route Description


This trail extension from the most commonly used Millersburg section of the Berry Mountain Trail is similar in characteristics. It is a lot longer however and from Woodside Station, just east of Millersburg, it is about 8 miles to the quarry in Elizabethville. The trail is well maintained and affords some interesting views of the Lykens Valley. There are some clear cuts around the trail that provide some interesting perspectives. If done from Woodside or the quarry, it would take about 2-3 hours to do this extension one way. It is a beautiful, relatively short hike in a wonderful area of Central Pennsylvania.

Essential Gear


Just bring a few snacks, something to drink, and a camera.
