It was not quite clear from the AllTrails description what this actually was. We drove in and it is a really beautiful drive next to a river where you see lots of people fishing. However as far as hiking goes you're pretty much walking along a relatively residential road the entire time. All the trails pictured above are marked as private property so we didn't even bother. The cave is really cool, we stopped and checked it out HOWEVER if you are looking for a trail hike (like we were) this is not the place.
Started in jersey shore, went 30 miles and turned around
Great tubing! Nice pace on the river, perfect water temperature and height (early August), amazing views every time the creek bends and the tree line opens. The river isn't too busy, and there's a tunnel that connects riders back to the parking lot easily once you finish. Some larger rocks creating decent rapids, but a safe ride none the less.
Penns Creek offers amazing, year-round trout fishing. I suggest starting right below Poe Paddy State Park, which in itself is a great place to visit.
This is a fabulous trail. But what's showing on my page is way far off the actual trail.
We camp at Poe Paddy State Park, floated down Penns Creek on inner tubes, climbed out, up the hill, thru the train tunnel, over the tressel and in the creek again for another trip around!! Great when it is full, too bumpy when dry
