West Rim Trail

Over Labor Day weekend, I backpacked the 30 mile West Rim Trail. The weather was perfect, if a little warm. The trail provided many great vistas of the Pine Creek Gorge, one of the largest canyons in the east, carved by glacial meltwater. The trail also winds in and out of side glens with small streams. The woodland hiking was very scenic. The trail stays near the rim of the gorge and side glens; even when there aren't views, you can often look down the steep terrain through the trees from the trail. Due to dry weather, many streams were low, but we were able to find enough water. We camped at Horse and Bohen Runs. We woke early one morning to see the sun rise over the canyon, as the mist hung below. We saw a bear and two cubs, and heard the eerie calls of coyotes one night. A great trip.

This trail is pretty high on my to-do list. Maybe next spring... (although if I have more time I might try to do the Quehanna Trail or Chuck Keiper Trail instead).
