Thundermountain Equestrian Trail

1.2 Miles Moderate

Elk State Forest
Driftwood, Pennsylvania

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.
