Quehanna Trail


 

The Mosquito Creek Bridge on the Quehanna Trail is temporarily closed due to flood damage. 

The Quehanna Trail is a 75-mile loop trail in the Moshannon and Elk State Forests. The Trail passes through some of the most wild and beautiful country Pennsylvania has to offer.

The main orange blazed trail begins on the western end at Parker Dam State Park. From Parker Dam the trail goes east into the Quehanna Wild Area toward Karthaus and Piper, then north toward Sinnemahoning and finally west through the Marion Brooks Natural Area back to Parker Dam.

There are two blue blazed cross-connector trails and numerous blue blazed side trails that add another 30 miles of trails so that the casual or avid hiker may spend a few hours or a few days enjoying the beauty of the Quehanna Wild Area. These additional 30 miles of blue blazed trails helps hikers to fashion shorter circuit hikes and enjoy many beautiful sights off the main orange trail.

In cooperation with DCNR, sections of this trail are maintained, in part, by volunteers from the Quehanna Area Trails Club.
