The yellow-blazed Laural Highland Hiking Trail covers 70 miles from Ohiopyle State Park north to Seward. This hike covers the 7.6 mile section between Maple Summit Road and PA Route 653. This section of the trail always seems to be near water. There is a small unnamed lake near Cranberry Glade Lake. Mile marker 15 is right beside a bridge across Harbaugh Run and is an excellent place to soak your feet.

This is a nice hike with interesting features of laurel (!:)), rock formations, crossing of small streams on wooden bridges. It's the LHHT so it's well blazed and maintained. Only saw one other person on the trail. You hear turkeys. Plenty of fungi this time of year with the rain we've had. Also, on this hike I didn't see a lake ....I think the lake folks see is towards mile marker 12 and 13.

Decent trail. Plenty of beautiful creeks. No view of a large lake as someone's photo shows.
