PA Wilds Trail


A few years ago I realized a continuous network of trails stretched across the PA Wilds, following both backpacking and connector trails. I always thought this could be a premier hiking route. After hiking extensively in the region I came up with the most scenic and feasible route, featuring vistas, waterfalls, vast meadows, streams, big rocks, diverse forests, isolation, superb camping, canyons, gorges, and wild elk. The route goes through four rural communities. There is no bushwhacking or new trail construction; it only follows existing trails. It is about 171 miles long, from Parker Dam State Park to Arnot Road. Hopefully this will attract more hikers across the vast trail system in the PA Wilds.
