>I was wondering if the Quehanna was less rocky.
I hiked the Quehanna Trail several years ago, and did not find it to be very
rocky. I guess you'd expect that since it is even further west than the
Susquehannock and Black Forest Trails. It has ups and downs like the
Susquehannock, but I think they are more worn and gradual on the Quehanna.
At the time I hiked it, you really needed a map. There were a couple of
sections where blazes were very hard to find. One of these sections had been
in a fire.
You'll never guess what you find near the hiking trail, out in the middle of
an isolated state forest. There is a nuclear reactor! It is a little thing,
definitely not a power reactor. I vaguely remember that the sign on it had
the name of a seed company and I speculated that they used it to start
mutations in seeds. The trail does not go beside it, but I did a little
bushwhacking because I was curious about some reference to it on the map.
