Hiking

Our route heading out toward Ketchum’s Gorge was great. Be careful not to miss the trailhead climbing a ridge around a portion of the gorge. We missed it at first because there was a great waterfall to view. The blaze will be right before the waterfall on a tree high to the right heading up the ridge. After this it was smooth sailing to the lower falls and natural grotto area. Beautiful and peaceful! The hike out of the gorge wasn’t too bad to the Lower Alpine Vista. The next stretch to the Alpine Vista has a 42% grade and maybe more extreme in parts. Experienced hikers and climbers should be able to handle this without much issue, but others should take it easy. It is a bit rigorous. The view is worth it though! To complete this loop after the view was dull. Some of the trails are near roads and beneath power lines. Also some pretty deep horse tracks on this portion. Overall a lovely day though!!!

We hiked this today and the mileage listed of 7.8 miles was very optimistic. The only places where we saw significant mud was horses had been ridden. In addition, the section of trail that goes through the gorge has several small areas which are washed out, or are getting close to washing out. Footing is treacherous in these sections

Very difficult, left with blood and bruises. 5.5 hours time for 10.1 loop and we filled in to complete the full loop which is posted elsewhere online. The first half we somewhat followed this AT trail but due to the plateau trail not being marked and no clear path it became a bit difficult to navigate in the forest. We crossed paths with one group and at that point the descent trail was evident and visible down to the water. If you start at Sullivan Falls and move upstream you will find yourself now at the bottom of Sullivan Falls where there is a zig zagged foot path that takes you back up to the lot of Sullivan Falls. Very demanding and challenging. Many great areas to swim as well but today the water was too cold. In some reviews elsewhere I read about snakes and bears but only came across frogs and porcupines. A trekking pole helps immensely on this trail as well.

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.

So the reason most of the recordings don’t look like the recording in the All Trails App that’s highlighted is because All Trails App, which works about 90% of the time, does not work down in the gorge. The hike I ended up doing is probably 50% of the hike the One on the app. That being said, Ketchum Gorge is gorgeous and worth the hike. As noted in other reviews you will need holes to get down below the falls. All in all a good day in the woods. I even got to use my compass.

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.

We did a loop using 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. Highland is a lot of marsh and mud unless ground is frozen, it would be overgrown in the summer. It goes through an exposure fence and then the trail makers took you through thick nettles, so we “bushwhacked” a better trail (which had old markers) down to the road and back to the car on Dry Run Rd. Making a 5 mile loop.

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.

Our second attempt at this trail.. this time from the trail head and is blazed yellow, this follows an old log road the entire trail. We did go off trail to hit the mountain peak, hoping for views but there was an enclosure fence instead. Once we got back down to the blazed trail we continued on for a bit and then turned around at halfway as it was late afternoon. Along this we did not come across the old walnut trail blazed red that would make a loop. (We tried the red blazed before and it was not a trail anymore)

This is not the Walnut Trail, but it is an old Bridle Trail with the red blaze. This trail is apparently no longer in use or even labeled at the beginning. The correct Walnut Trailhead is labeled down the road.
