Enjoyed this point-to-point hike on the Standing Stone Trail (formerly Link Trail), from gamelands parking north of the 1000 steps to the ball field next to Mapleton. Perfect weather.
Kicked off spring with a weekend trip to Jacks Mountain. Hiked the link trail and camped out overnight. Coming down the steps was just as hard if not harder.
Just had enough time after work to make it up the steps and down the Link Trail about a mile. The fall colors were amazing! I would highly recommend doing this hike in October.
This is a fantastic hike. Great views throughout. I think there was more than 6 switchbacks, sure seemed like it. Wasn't expecting all the radio/cellphone/tv towers at the top. No mention of that on this page.
Great hike! Beautiful views of the Juniata Valley and surrounding mountains. Definitely one for the fall with the foliage. The 1,000 steps is a nice challenge.
Great views, great history, great everything! This is one of my favorites in PA. You won't be sorry if you do this one. Beautiful spring day!
