Waterproof footwear is a must, this is a very wet trail! That being said it’s a beautiful hike, well marked and scenic.

I've thru hiked in both directions. Lack of vistas is easy to get over as the terrain changes every mile or so. Plenty of good water sources. Southbound from Blue Knob has some challenging decents. Be sure your pack is balanced well. I took my time and finished each trek in three days.

I completely enjoy this trail ~ it has a great view from Wolf Rocks, and is excellent when you want to get into the woods, but don't have all day to do it.

One of my favorite trails because of the low volume of hikers. I enjoy trails that are off the beaten path, and I don't encounter anybody while hiking. It makes for some excellent solitude in the wilderness. One of my favorites to do early in the year because Clark Run has more water flowing. This was my second time doing the entire loop. The first 3/4 miles are rigorous, as the trail elevates along the run, but it is well worth it. Going counterclockwise, the final ~1 mile is tough to traverse due to the rocks and boulders. Great views.

Could not find the turkey

Monday, November 07, 2016

This was an excellent hike for this time of year. As you can see from the map you have some nice elevation gains. A few nice views along the way. Can get confusing near mile marker 3 with the snowmobile trails intermixing with the hiking trail. On top of that some elitist type went through with black paint and covered most of the blazes so you may need to pause every now and again to find which way the trail leads. If the ground is wet or even covered with damp leaves I would go counter clockwise as the grade gets pretty rough to the left of the creek. This was one of the better hikes around the Johnstown area without a large water feature.
