Just hiked 0.7miles with a 580ft vertical gain from the trail head parking area to the Lynch Overlook(Beaver Stadium) at the top of Mt Nittany in 14 mins thru the dreary drizzle with daylight fading just to shout: THE PANTHERS ARE MIGHTY & HAIL TO PITT !!!
One of the most beautiful & rocky trails in Pennsylvania. That 600ft in the first half mile really gets the blood pumping(and, in my case, the sweat pouring). The conservancy is doing a wonderful job!
