Old Loggers Path Trek

Old Loggers Path Hike

The trail is a 27.1 mile long circuit trail located in northeastern Lycoming County. The starting point is located approximately 2.7 miles Southwest of Ellenton on Legislative Route 41110. The trail is located entirely on State Forest Lands, land that had formerly belonged to the Central Pennsylvania Lumber Co. The trail layout has taken advantage of the engineering expertise of the early logging railroaders as it follows the grades. The highlights of the trail are the many cuts & fills on the grades, Rock Run (one of the prettiest streams in Pennsylvania), the vistas that look into the McIntyre Wild Area, Pleasant Stream and the Loyalsock Trail region.
