HikingGreat!

Park at Tunnel and cross picturesque pedestrian bridge. The first 2.5m is a nicely elevated, smooth rail trail along Penns Creek. Great for an easy nature walk/trail run. Around 2.8m the terrain changes as the trail nears the creek- lush ferns, moss covered rocks and rivulets. I veered left at 3m to take the rail trail up the mt. Another option would be to continue following the creek to the right where other hikers told me there is a bridge over the creek that forms a loop. I logged 8 miles, out and back.

Lovely trail. I took a diversion creekside early on, until I started to get my feet wet. This section of Penn's Creek is usually high and fast, but it's the lowest it's been in a while, so creekside hiking was possible. Great weekend for fall colors, too.

Very easy hike. Some parts were water logged. There is a small part where you need to walk on the gravel road.

It was not quite clear from the AllTrails description what this actually was. We drove in and it is a really beautiful drive next to a river where you see lots of people fishing. However as far as hiking goes you're pretty much walking along a relatively residential road the entire time. All the trails pictured above are marked as private property so we didn't even bother. The cave is really cool, we stopped and checked it out HOWEVER if you are looking for a trail hike (like we were) this is not the place.

Great tubing! Nice pace on the river, perfect water temperature and height (early August), amazing views every time the creek bends and the tree line opens. The river isn't too busy, and there's a tunnel that connects riders back to the parking lot easily once you finish. Some larger rocks creating decent rapids, but a safe ride none the less.

Fishing

Penns Creek offers amazing, year-round trout fishing. I suggest starting right below Poe Paddy State Park, which in itself is a great place to visit.

This is a fabulous trail. But what's showing on my page is way far off the actual trail.
