The Remote Hike In Pennsylvania Winds Through The Forest And Rock Formations
Remote hikes often promise us the chance to be alone with nature and with our thoughts. We may pass other hikers along the path, who are searching for the same quiet and breathtaking scenery. If it’s tranquility, gorgeous landscape, and remoteness you crave, slip on your hiking boots for a trek along the Tanbark Trail in Pennsylvania.
Journey deep into Allegheny National Forest, where you'll likely enjoy solitude, on the Tankbark Trail, which measures just under seven miles.
However, you'll get a fairly good workout along the way. The out and back trail is rated moderate.
Expect a few challenges along the way, including uphill climbs and slippery spots after a rain.
Well-maintained and marked, Tanbark Trail will lead you through a variety of terrain, including past flowing streams and heavily wooded areas. (Keep an eye out for tree roots.)
You'll also pass through stunning rock formations, arguably the highlight of the trail, that are...
Massive and well-worth exploring. You probably won't want to forget your camera either.
If you need a refill of water, you'll also find several water sources along the trail, which is tucked in the Hearts Content Recreation Area.
Extend your time in the forest, too, by staying at the campground in Hearts Content.
Even if you hike the Tanbark trail during the hottest days of summer, you'll be protected from the full glare of the sun by the canopies of trees. Dogs are also allowed on the trail.
Learn more on the official website of
Allegheny National Forest. You can also find more photos, information, and a map on All Trails.
