The Jerry Ridge Vista Trail at Sproul State Forest in Westport, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.1-mile out-and-back hike to a lookout point south of the Sinnemahoning Creek.
The trail can be found at the end of Jerry Ridge Rd with a sign that reads "Vista". At the lookout point, you'll view the mountains of northern Pennsylvania with the Sinnemahoning Creek cutting through the valley below.
Road Conditions: Jerry Ridge Rd and the roads leading to it are all dirt. These roads can often be extremely muddy during the rainy seasons and if you're not careful, your car could get stuck. There's also no cell service for dozens of miles. If you plan to drive in, it's often an 11-mile one-way drive to get to the trailhead, so come prepared with a vehicle that can handle these conditions.
