Route Description

This trail may well be the best on the ridge. It is only a class one trail, but this is because it is well maintained. This trail climbs the much steeper northern side of the ridge. The trail is about a half mile in length and you'll gain over 500 feet of elevation. The view north from the trail is wonderful with a panoramic of the Susquehanna River unfolding in front of or behind you. Be careful on this trail though because it is composed of some pretty gravelly rock which is pretty slick on such a steep slope.

Essential Gear

Comfortable shoes, a trekking pole and some snacks.
