“A quiet run with views of the Susquehanna River.”— Liz Stevens
The obstacles are well worth the trouble as this is a particularly nice section featuring woods, a waterfall, and several good viewpoints over the river and the dam to the north.
Otherwise, the singletrack follows the rolling terrain through the shaded woods until it briefly overlaps a gravel road a few miles ahead. After the road, runrs are rewarded with a bamboo tunnel that hangs low over the trail.
Look for a large clearing after the second stream crossing. This makes a great spot to relax and enjoy a snack or lunch before finishing the final gradual climb of the run.
