Descent

This trail starts along the train tracks next to where the Round Island Run trail ends and is a 3.2 mile alternative route back up to the campsite in Sproul State Forest, PA.

This is partially a defined trail and partially a bushwhacking trail.

The climb back to Jerry Ridge Rd from where the data leaves the train track area is straight bushwhacking up about 1000 feet of steep mountain side. Prepare for the worst and keep on pushing...

Camping: At the end of this recording is a small spur trail that leads from Jerry Ridge Rd over to an amazing campsite with views of Sinnemahoning Creek and the surrounding mountains. You can park at the road and walk a couple hundred feet to the campsite.

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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
