Trail Overview

This is a narrow, rocky, and muddy trail on the Montage Tract of Pinchot State Forest. The bottom section of the trail follows along a stream and passes through the tornado scar from the 2017 storm. The trail passes below Montage Ski Resort and a lake before dead-ending at State Forest Boundary. The upper section travels a short distance and ends at the backside to Lake Scranton at State Forest Boundary. Both sections are narrow with the minimum passing room, if any. Neither section will be plowed. Downed trees, rock falls, washouts will be encountered. Please tread lightly and respect private property.
