It was about 15°F outside yesterday (that’s -9.4C, for those of you from the civilized world). Perfect hiking weather. So a few of us went deep into Pennsylvania’s Appalachian coal country to check out the Roaring Creek Trail in the Weiser State Forest.
The trail is basically a gravel forest road with gates on either end to keep the cars out. It’s very level, almost like a rail trail. It’s 8 miles long with picnic tables every mile or so. So, other than the cold, it was a very easy walk.
It runs right along 3 nice lakes (actually reservoirs), so it’s all very scenic.
The geese seem to like it. (click for big)
There are a couple of side trails. There are all named some variation of “Natalie Miner’s Path,” and they have cool yellow blazes with a little black miner man in the middle.
I gps logged the trail, so you can see it in the map now.
I also tagged the trail “lcn=ROAR” so it should show up in the Cyclemap, in a about a week.
