Chestnut Springs Trail

The Details

Miles: 1.1
Blaze Color: Yellow-Red
Difficulty Level: Moderate
Directions: Google Maps

The north end of the trail leaves the stream and yellow birches and rhododendron of the Shamokin Gorge and enters oak-hickory forest type. As the trail enters south facing territory, several small streams cross the trail. This southern end is ideal for spring wildflowers like bloodroot, wild ginger, and violets; all of which bloom in April. Watch for stinging nettle (long pants recommended).

Use caution in winter.
