I’ve reserved all the bank holidays for going on hikes with the dog. Might go to Quebec Run Wild Area tomorrow.

Transplanting this here.
I love Quebec Run. It is a hidden gem back in there. Some beautiful views of windmills. I hunted in there one year and we had a heck of a hike getting my buddy's deer out. There's a road that intersects it. Sometimes they open it, if so that'd be the best spot to park.

Ended up going. Parked at the Mill run Trailhead. That road you are speaking of that intersects it had to be gated off, because i hiked on a stretch of it to get back to the car, and there're had to be 6 inches of snow or more on it with no evidence of vehicles on it. road to the trailhead was surprisingly fine though. it was an awesome time, and there was substantially more snow there than there was on route 40 let alone ohiopyle. added bonus: saw zero human beings. spent about 3 hours there, then another hour and a half or so in ohiopyle.

dog is super happy and super tired. i am super happy and my feet are killing me.

Went out to Keystone and managed to rack up 5.5 miles of trail walking. Not a bad way to spend a below freezing day.

Anyone know anything about the mid state trail MST around state college? I think the nice view is the the Indian wells trail?

I have hiked on the MST in two spots (Poe Valley/Poe Paddy and also near Little Pine SP) and did some volunteer trail care down closer to the Turnpike/Everett. Not really anywhere near state college though. My only advice is that it can get nasty/overgrown in spots. It isn’t steeper or rougher than the LHHT but you can definitely tell that a lot of people hike on the LHHT and not so many people go on the MST. That might not be the case around state college, but in my experience it can be “wilder”

Eddy, if you are looking for a great trail in Central PA, may I recommend the Standing Stone Trail? The SST includes the famous 1000 Steps on Route 22 outside of Mount Union. I am in a Facebook group for the trail and it is a really popular yet not too crowded hike.

I like wilder hikes, easier to get lost which is more fun.

1000 steps is definitely on our list

Going to put a few miles on the West Penn Trail today. Start at the rec area and do the switchbacks going towards Blairsville.

Edward, how were the snow levels? I went to laurel summit on a day off last week and it was up to knee deep at some point. I actually tried to go to Roaring Run natural area but the doggo couldn’t navigate the snow. It was more manageable at Laurel Hill and Wolf Rocks though

Deeper than I thought they would be. Tracks were covered over as well so we were plowing through. It was a workout
