Penns Creek Path - Mid State Trail

2.79 Miles
Centre, Mifflin, Snyder

Trail Description

Starting out from the roadside trailhead near Poe Mills, you soon will come to a narrow, rustic foot bridge that crosses Penns Creek. Just beyond the bridge is the next thrill, a former railroad tunnel carved into the rock face. A headlight or flashlight is handy here. Beyond the tunnel the trail delivers a serene woodland experience. At Mile 1.5 Penn Creek becomes visible again through the foliage. From here to the end of the trail larch and pine trees share space with the deciduous trees lacing the sky above. The crushed stone surface gradually fills with equal amounts of grass giving the impression of being less-traveled. Near the end of the trail at Cherry Run, the Mid-State Trail breaks off to the left heading uphill.
