Breaking Trail

A once endangered path will soon traverse the Keystone State—and connect hikers to a larger network.

On the horizon, the mountain ridges lie peace­fully side by side, evenly spaced, like waves in the ocean that haven’t yet swelled to curling. I stand atop one just like them—Tussey Moun­tain—and cannot locate a town, a building, a road, or any other sign of human construction in my view. I like it this way.

The knife-edge ridge of Tussey Mountain is very narrow and serrated. Giant slabs of protruding rock march down its back like dragon scales. The Mid State Trail (MST) weaves through and over these massive chunks of sandstone, making it quite fun to negotiate if you take your time. Since trees cannot grow on these surfaces, this is where you find the best views, and they are plentiful.
