This is a great hike on the AT. cool views of the river and the kids had fun climbing around on the rocks. We made this a loop. Check out my full review which includes directions and other things to look out for.

Great trail for central PA! I read a lot of views saying the trees obstructed views. To an extent yes, however, I found plenty of great spots where there is a nice view (pictures are uploaded). If you have some experience, don't be afraid to wonder a bit off the path and climb onto a large rock.

It was a bit challenging at times but overall doable. I would rate this on the higher end of "moderate". It does get step and is very rocky, but there are plenty of leveled flat areas as well.

Directions: From parking lot, cross road and cross railroad tracks. You will see trail marker for the white Appalachian. Follower white markers up and around the moutain on this trail until you hit the blue marked susquehanna trail. Take this back down to the white trail and continue back to parking lot. It is well marked and pretty easy to follow.
