I was recommended this area by a friend. I decided to attach my recording to this trail since it had no prior reviews or images, even though I was only on it briefly. Referencing my recording, it’s the section between the first and second sharp left turns.

Anyways, the section was a moderate descent with an obvious path, but poor footing (definitely minimal traffic) that intersected with the “Gap” Trail after a steep decline. The section before this looked similar to the service road I followed to get to it, and the section after looked to disappear.

The loop I ended up completing was easy to follow and well-blazed, but the “Gap” Trail obviously sees minimal traffic as well.

this trail is part of the mid state trail. it follows along a riverbank with lots of amazing moss and different kinds of spiders. It was like a magical fairy land. My favorite hike the season by far! I followed this on to other sections of the mid state trail for a nice full day hike.

Nice trail - parts are very rocky - great view at the Mason-Dixon Line.

You must follow the yellow markings and it is definitely over 1.1 miles. It is not cleared and very steep down and then when you turn around very steep up hill. Should be considered hard.

Not the most exciting of trails, but a nice little stroll, especially for beginners looking for a little incline.

It was a nice spooky late October hike.

In August 2017 I found the trail to be grown over with mountain laurel and small trees.

On 8/23/17 the trail was overgrown and not well marked. Take a machete.

Fun trail with some rock gardens. Only 1.25 miles to where it intersects with Sweet Root trail.

Parked at the beginning of the Tower Road and crossed Aughwick to hit Lincoln Trail, then made a right onto Lockard, which was very clear and not rocky. There was a spring in the middle of Lockard where it meets Fore Trail. I took Fore right and climbed the ridge back to Aughwick Road and followed the road back to my car. Very rocky on Fore Trail

This trail is poorly marked and there were a few areas I had to guess my direction and had to backtrack. It's definitely not a boring walk. Lots of rocks and turns but it's kind of odd that it ends part way down the ridge. Great trail for getting in shape. There are some blueberries to be picked at a clearing when you cross the Tuscarora trail

This trail can be completed as a loop which totals 3 miles. From the parking lot, pass through the gate at the northeast end of the lot and turn right onto the Mid-State Trail. Follow this decent and cross over Rt 326 to the beginning of the Garlic Trail. At the top of this trail, turn right to follow an old logging road to Blankely Rd (gravel) and turn right. Hike a short distance to scenic vista then turn left and then right to join ATV trail. This section follows the ridge and ends up back at the parking lot. We loved this trail and would hike it again. We saw much wildlife including a wood turtle, an orange salamander, and a wild turkey hen with her six chicks.

A beautiful trail that follows a shallow stream with many rock step crossings.

Gorgeous trail that my sisters and I hike regularly. Never get tired of it. If you make the right at the top of the garlic trail, then follow the gravel road from the top it will take you to the lookouts that ive pictured!

Very beautiful in the beginning with rhododendrons over a stream. Then it opens to a wide uphill trail which will have nice views in the fall.

A short 1/2 mile connection between the Tuscarora and the Flat Rock trail. Getting to it might be difficult, but the trail itself is relatively flat with few obstacles. A touch overgrown in parts, but the trail is still relatively easy to keep track of.

If you look at it from the junction with the Tuscarora, it appears to follow a creekbed. It only does for about 100-200 feet, before turning into a dry dirt trail.

Tower Road really is just that, a gravel road. The best intrinsic feature is the scenic overlook off the right side of the loop. However, Lincoln, Plank, Fore and Tuscarora Trails weave in and out---That's where the real action is! Plank is beautifully scenic. Tuscarora has challenging rocks and elevation changes. The fire road that runs parallel to the left of Tower Road connects with Tuscarora north to take you over the rocks and down to Richmond Road / Cowans Gap State park. Plenty of parking off Aughwick Road. Happy trails!
