Old Logger's Path Trailhead

The Old Loggers Path is 27.1 mile long circuit trail located in northeastern Lycoming County. The starting point is located approximately 2.7 miles Southwest of Ellenton near the ghost town of Masten. The trail is located entirely on State Forest Lands, land that had formerly belonged to the Central Pennsylvania Lumber Co. The trail layout has taken advantage of the engineering expertise of the early logging railroaders as it follows the grades. The highlights of the trail are the many cuts & fills on the grades, Rock Run (one of the prettiest streams in Pennsylvania), the vistas that look into the McIntyre Wild Area, Pleasant Stream and the Loyalsock Trail region.

Day 1 - Saturday, May 26th - 10 miles hiking - Meet at the Old Loggers Path Trailhead at 10am to begin hiking. From my research, cell phone coverage is spotty or potentially nonexistent, and it's super important to be on time. There may not be a way to communicate over cell phone once at the trailhead. My number is[masked]. I will be there by 9:45AM. About 10 miles into the hike, we will find a location to setup camp. Day 2 - Sunday, May 27th - Another 10 mile day - Pack up camp and head out. About 10 miles into the hike, we will find a location to setup camp. Day 3 - Monday, May 28th - 7 miles. In the morning, pack up camp and finish up the last 7 miles of the trail. Assume that we will finish up at some time around noon, but could be later, could be earlier.

Detailed trail map with campsites. This map is doing the trail counter clockwise, we will be doing it clockwise. The plan is to stay at or near Camp 7 on the map day 1, Camp 3 on the map day 2.
