I agree that this is the worst marked trail in the park. But it is wonderful to be out in the woods like this. There is a fantastic view of Raystown Lake. This is a beautiful trip into higher country.
This trail will earn your respect! It is up and down, rocky, cliffs, hard to follow in places, blow-down, poorly maintained and steep in places. But the reward is beautiful forest scenery, views, solitude and even a great view of Raystown Lake. The park claims it is orange blazed but the few blazes that I found were yellow. I wonder when they were up there? I would recommend navigation stuff along with you. Tracking is great but a dead battery or lost signal could make you wish for a good old fashioned compass. Failing all that down will bring you back to Trough Creek on almost the entire route.
