Hiking, Snowshoeing, and Cross country skiing in cameron county pa

Opportunities for vigorous outdoor activities in N. Central Pa. are nearly infinite. Cameron County alone has thousands of acres of public use State Forest Lands, State Game Lands and State Parks, along with the Quehanna Wild Area, - all of which have miles of well marked and maintained, multiple use trail systems for foot traffic of any kind.

XC Skiers and snowshoers will appreciate the higher elevation of the Quehanna Wild Area as the snow comes earlier and stays longer, than the surrounding region. With the established Quehanna Trail, and all the cross connector ski/hiking link trails, a skier can go for days in the Quehanna without crossing the same path.

For day hiking or multiple day through hiking, the Bucktail Path begins in the northern reaches of Cameron County and roughly follows the spine of the ridge that separates the First Fork of the Sinnemahoning with the Driftwood branch, where it ends after 34 miles in the village of Sinnemahoning. From Sinnemahoning, hikers can link up with the Quehanna Trail which is a 76 mile loop through amazingly wild territory, via the Old Sinnemahoning Pike trail.

Any number of day or multiday hikes can be planned using these and dozens of other trail systems through out the region.
