Hidden Treasures #3 – Pennsylvania


Welcome to the third installment of our exploration of some of the most beautiful, off-the-beaten-path places in the Central and Southern Appalachian Mountains. In this issue, we hand picked some water-related hot spots perfect for late summer days: hikes, waterfalls, swimming holes and everything in between — areas that are perfect for dipping your toes, or your whole self, into the water.

Miners Run is a tranquil area nestled in lower Lycoming County, Penn. A path follows the course of a creek deep in McIntyre Wild Area, a forest region preserved by the state for “hiking, hunting, fishing and the pursuit of peace and solitude.” As the trail emerges from the trees, you can look down into the ravine formed by Miners Run and over a breathtaking scene of jumbled boulders and waterfall after waterfall cascading over a very narrow and steep gorge. Anglers enjoy fly fishing at Miners Run, and the creek also flows into Rock Run, a popular fishing and swimming spot. Experienced boaters will even paddle a short section of Miners Run. For others, simply enjoying the scenery is enough. — By Anna Norwood
