Explore Clarion River Lands: Blyson Loop Waterfalls & Rocks Ramble

Are you curious as to what scenic surprises, wildlife, and local history lie within the newly acquired     Clarion River Lands?  If so, you’ll need a guide to get you there.  Trails are steep, rocky, and sometimes hard to find, but the wilderness experience will be worth the effort. 

This 3mile interpretive, very strenuous, and often times off-trail hike climbs 460ft from the valley floor to the hilltop. We’ll investigate rock outcrops along the way for wildlife and historic use. The tail end of the hike loops back down along the picturesque Blyson Run Valley and its numerous small waterfalls. Meet at Park Office where we will drive to the starting point roughly 9 miles downriver. Access to the kick-off point is not easy. Pick-ups and jeeps are good, low clearance vehicles are bad. Pack a lunch and bring plenty of water!
