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.

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.

I love this trail. It is my go to when I don't know where else to go. It is a great half day hike and is easy enough for a beginner and has a ton of interesting features. If you go to the right of the loop first you will hike up the gorge along the water and if you hike to the left first you will see a small overlook of the river and then come to a massive boulder field.

Hiked this years ago, from what I remember it had pretty good elevation and some nice views. The trailhead is at the bottom of RT 403 if you are familiar with the area.

I have not completed it yet. I have did the first climb and enjoyed it. Just be careful the rocks are all loose.

Beautiful little valley but with leaves on the ground it's a bit challenging. Beautiful and quiet but be ready to climb.
