May 19, 2014: Day hike around the campgrounds at Lackawanna State Park in Northeast Pa.
Linn run - cabin #2
Colonel Denning State Park is a small, 273 acre Pennsylvania park, which is surrounded by the much larger 91,000+ acre Tuscarora State Forest. The park, and the Flat Rock trailhead, are located near the town Newville on Doubling Gap Road in Cumberland County. In this area, Blue Mountain doubles back on itself creating a gap, hence the name Doubling Gap. This area is rich in history but I was there for the trail. In short, it's a tough one. It's a 2.5 mile out and back trail for a total of 5 miles round trip, although it can be connected with other trails within Tuscarora State Forest, forming various loops and lengths. This trail starts behind the Environmental classroom and just across Doubling Gap Run (Creek) The elevation at the trailhead is 791 feet. You then make a steep one mile climb with very few switchbacks before the trail evens out for about a half mile. (Note that after the first mile you then cross into Tuscarora State Forest and the blaze turns from red to blue.) The last mile to the summit of Blue Mountain is a rocky near vertical climb without any switchbacks. Elevation at summit 1,987 feet. From there you descend just slightly until you reach the Flat Rock Overlook. At the rock you get a sweeping 180 vista of the Cumberland Valley and the mountains that surround it on nearly all sides. The only gap that I was able to see was to the west, but Im sure that there is a gap toward the Piedmont region to the east, bc Interstate 81 runs through the valley. Overall, this was a strenuous but very rewarding hike. I rate this a SOLID 5 out of 5 Billygoats. Seriously... A few locals told me that this and a trail called "1,000 Steps" on Jack's Mountain were the toughest trails in all of southern Pennsylvania. Another hiker told me that the Flat Rock Overlook was the best view in southern Pennsylvania. Good times. Thank you for watching.
