This trail is a nice shortcut to the Loyalsock Trail and then on over the mountain into Kettle Creek Gorge Wild Area, about two miles to Kettle Creek itself. The falls on Dutter's (Detters) Run are well below this trail, so if the falls are your main interest, follow the run itself up to its junction with the Loyalsock Trail. A very pretty series of cascades and falls make this a worthy hike.

Nicely blazed trail, if you are looking for all the waterfalls you need to be off the trail following Dutter’s Run up then you’ll eventually pick up the Loyalsock Trail and then we came back down using Dutter’s Trail.

This is called Dutters Trail. It was a good uphill right away that levels off, crosses the Loyalsock Trail, and connects to McCarty Road(gated) and switches to Highlanding Trail if you continue. We did both and walked back to the car on Dry Run Rd. Making a 5 mile loop.
