Upper Shamokin Gorge Trail

The Details

Miles: 0.8
Blaze Color: Red
Difficulty Level: Difficult
Directions: Google Maps

One of the more beautiful and challenging hikes on the mountain, the Gorge Trail starts on Laurel Springs Drive near Wolftrap Lane where it follows and crosses the headwaters of Stoney Creek at several spots. At some places the water itself is invisible, but easily heard under the rocks. Stream life can be found on the undersides of rocks and plant life is abundant all around.

It connects to the current Appalachian Trail and intersects with the Upper Shamokin Falls and Laurel Springs Gap Overlook trails.

Use caution in the winter.
