The Upland Trail at Raccoon Creek State Park in Clinton, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.5-mile one-way trail that connects the Mineral Springs Loop Trail to the main parking lot at the park along Raccoon Park Rd.
This recording starts at the western trailhead which can be found along the Mineral Springs Loop Trail, just after visiting the waterfall heading east. Heading west to east is easier than heading east to west as the hike is much more flat - the hike is a bit more moderate if you plan to hike towards the Mineral Springs Loop Trail from the parking lot.
Just after leaving the Mineral Springs Loop Trail, you'll cross the Heritage Trail before this trail continues into the woods and into a coniferous forest. Ignore each of the offshoot trails to each side of this one to continue following the Upland Trail.
The trail follows red blazes that were painted over blue blazes, so follow both colors where applicable - some blue blazes were not painted over.
Dogs and biking are both allowed on this trail.
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!️
