“This ride links trails from Penn Roosevelt to Coopers Gap.”— Neil Millar
Be sure to bring charcoal and food to take advantage of the provided the grilling facilities and refuel after a great meander through the Rothrock Forest.
Turn left onto Stone Creek Rd head towards Coopers Gap Rd which is approximately 1.7 miles ahead. Turn right on to Coopers Gap Rd. Not far after crossing a bridge, you'll turn to the right onto Brush Ridge Trail. This will wind it's way back to Coopers Gap Rd.
Turn right onto Coopers Gap Rd and begin the 1.5 mile climb to the upper entrance to Dutch Alvin. One could enter using the lower entrance and climb to the same point. Follow Dutch Alvin, which then becomes Chestnut Spring, around back to Coopers Gap Rd.
Turn left on Coopers Gap Rd, for a short spin before veering left and beginning the climb on Chicken Peter. Enjoy the first part of Chicken Peter before dropping down on Coopers Gap Rd. Make sure you cross the road at this point and set off down Shittaka. Following Shittaka the whole way, you'll cross Coopers Gap Rd and begin a climb through the rooty pine forest before dropping down and connecting to Deer Tick .
The slow climb up Deer Tick is rewarded with a well deserved rest once you reach the top at the flat rock outcropping. Setting off from the rocks, not towards the viewing area, you'll follow Beautiful Trail across flat rock to Conklin Rd. Here, you'll turn right and drop down Conklin Rd, approx. 0.7 miles before - you guessed it - climbing again.
This time you'll have turned off to your left onto Indian Trail. Indian is a slow, steady climb with a couple of log crossings and skinny log bridges that will eventually lead to Stone Creek Rd.
On Stone Creek Rd turn left for the 2.5 miles back to the park and your car.
