Black bear sighting near Ralph’s PGV. Many fresh bear/cub prints on trail after wolf rocks + between six mile run and 504. History

Getting forecast...

Nothing overly difficult, this trail traverses forests, swamps, valleys, and lots of rock gardens.

Runner Notes

Watch for rocks, as well as snakes. Both are common on the vista section.

Description

The Allegheny Front Trail starts at the PA 504 trailhead, circumnavigating the State Park in a clockwise direction, starting at the "3 o'clock" position, with yellow blazes painting all 41 miles of the trail. There are signs at any tricky intersections, so navigation is not an issue the majority of the time.

Most fast running springs are great for drinking, provided that they are properly filtered. DO NOT drink the Moshannon Creek water. Its orange color is a result of coal mining, and it is not suitable for drinking.

Campsites are plentiful, with one every five miles or so, if not even closer together.

Flora & Fauna

Blueberry bushes can be found, as well as teaberries. Typical PA animals, as well as reports of Bald Eagles and owls along stream valleys.
