Quehanna Wild Area


An overnight backpack into this beautiful wilderness to explore an off trail view and meadows. The meadow hike was incredible, really reminded me of Dolly Sods with miles of meadows with large white rocks. Pebble Run, and then Mosquito Creek, flowed in the valley below the meadows. There was even a view of an oxbow loop along Mosquito Creek. We camped along Mosquito Creek and the stars were spectacular, particularly Orion. Next morning we hiked to Crawford Vista and on the east cross connector with more meadows. We passed two backpackers from Detroit who were just starting their hike. Quehanna Wild Area has landscapes very different from others in the PA Wilds and is a superb place to hike.

That was also my impression when I wandered around the Beaver Run Pond area last October. Way less crowded than Dolly Sods, too.

That was easily one of my favorite outings last year -- particularly that Quehanna Meadow area southwest of the pond/dam that I posted a few pics of here. What a spectacular and colorful place to explore when the leaves are changing, and it even looks nice this time of year judging by your photos. Thanks for bringing me back to that awesome spot!

Sure. Quehanna is a special place, one of my favorites to visit.
