A terrific night hike with Evie (Adventures with Sasquatch Girl) on the NCT by State Line. We watched sunset and moonrise in the field atop Booth Hill, hiked on to the 2nd gasline & heard Sasquatch! Amy, Terry, Stacy

Went on the 5.1 and back today with my dog. Only a few muddy spots even after all the rain we have had recently, which surprised me. First time on it and I recommend it. Great few hour hike on that path. All I would add would be some water, but I’m just asking for things now.

We hiked on a Saturday afternoon in June and did not see another hiker. To park where we did you need to drive in from route 51 as the bridge is out on Watts Mills just beyond the trail parking and it doesn’t look like it will be replaced anytime soon. It is a shaded hike in the woods. We are in a very wet June and the trail was rather muddy in a few spots.

Had a really good time with 2 4-year old's. We did 3 miles out and then back. They loved the meadow portion and all the ups and downs. Super easy to follow since it's so well marked.

Very well marked trail, and beautiful switch ups of scenery! Very dog friendly, and parking was close to the trail! I would rate the trail as moderate-hard as it was almost all up steep hills, and after hiking 6 miles the trek up to Indian rock absolutely sucked and was not worth it IMHO lol. Also not many places to set up camp once you get off game lands and are able to. You also go through a field for quite some time so make sure you spray will off to keep the ticks away.

We went to this trail and planned on backpacking but there was a big sign that said camping was prohibited on PA state game lands and also signs about public hunting taking place. Kind of freaked us out so we went somewhere else. Trail looked narrow but well marked and there was a public parking lot.

Some spots challenging when wet!

is overnight camping allowed

Good trail. Picked a bad day full of rain but the trail is so well-kept.

I only hiked about 3.5 miles in because of limited daylight. Trail is VERY well marked. Yellow blazes mark the trail from the parking lot to the main NCT. After that, follow the blue blazes. I never questioned if I was following the proper pathway. Beautiful autumn hike. I did not see one other human the entire 3.5 miles in or the 3.5 miles back to the car.

Very nice trail.

nice well maintained trail.

10.6 miles from OH line to darlington. 86 floors the elevation changes are tough if you’re not used to it. Indian rock lookout is great.

This is the first section of the North Country Trail going West Bound. The has parking very close to the border of Ohio then a steep climb into State Game Lands 285 of PA. This is a amazing trail and is take care of by a local NCT chapter. It is very well blazed and features a memorial, Indian Rock, some small rivers, and some awesome views!
