Trail Overview

This is a short seasonal-use road outside of Little Meadows, Pennsylvania, paved with stone. It is a low/no maintenance road that has some steep grade hill climbing on the way up. The road can be washed out at times and has no winter maintenance. About halfway up, you will be presented with a hard right to a steep hill climb section with a triple whoop that leads to a clearing where you can see the mountains off in the distance.

Difficulty

Though not a technical masterpiece of off-roading, you will see slick and deep snow at times, downed trees, and occasionally washed-out roadways. There are very few places to pull off or turn around. Though you can drive this road any season, autumn and winter will allow you to see more and have increased difficulty with mud and/or snow.
