Thundermountain Equestrian Trail at Elk State Forest in Driftwood, Pennsylvania is a moderate backpacking trail that leads into the wilderness of Elk State Forest. The trail itself is much longer than the reported 1.2 mile out-and-back distance here, but we only hiked a small portion of this trail. Horses are allowed, but we saw none while out there. The trail is lightly-trafficked and is not a popular trail, but you may see other backpackers or horseback riders along the trail from time to time.

Wild elk are present in these woods and we did hear a male elk bugling at night near out campsite. Unfortunately we did not venture far enough to find any views or lookout points, but this is a great backpacking trail for north-central Pennsylvania.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
