Description

Located in Pennsylvania's Potter and Clinton counties, the Susquehannock Trail System (STS) is an 85 mile loop trail. It is marked with 2" x 6" orange paint blazes and occasionally an STS emblem. The STS offers the public a glimpse of Pennsylvania's crown jewel.

Part of the STS runs in conjunction with the Donut Hole Trail, and the STS also has a connecting link to the Black Forest Trail. There are also two cross-over trails available to provide hikers with the option of a shorter loop hike.

The most secluded section of the STS is a 10-mile stretch through PA's largest wild area, the Hammersley Wild Area, offering hikers access into part of the most remote and prestine nature Pennsylvania has to offer.

A comprehensive trail guide and map is available from stc-hike.org/Gear.aspx
