Cherry Springs Vista, Susquehannock State Forest

Want to take it easy and see some natural beauty in the PA Wilds?  Take a drive and see the various road-side vistas the Susquehannock State Forest has to offer.

This state forest is vast, covering 265,000 acres, and it has about twelve different vistas on its network of roads.  Be sure to get a free public use map of the forest to help with navigation.  Contact the state forest office.

The roads are usually in good shape and besides views they offer isolation, beautiful forests, streams, and opportunities to see wildlife.

Some of my favorite vistas are along PA 44, particularly Cherry Springs vista.  Losey Run vista is excellent, as are the ones along McConnell and Junction Roads.

The state forest is home to vast northern hardwoods that are stunning in the Autumn.  Colors tend to peak in late September to mid October.  As others crowd New England, you can have this whole place to yourself.

Our next stop on our PA Wilds tour will be the stars, Milky Way, constellations, and shooting stars of Cherry Springs State Park, home to some of the darkest skies in the east.
