Rocky Knob - Quarry Gap, Michaux Forest, PA

Photos by Michael Juskelis, 2009/03/07.

We've hiked the Hosack Run Trail many times and never saw this vernal pond teaming with life: newts, spring peepers and aquatic grasses.

The view of Long Pine Run Reservoir from a pier at the beginning of the Beaver Trail.

Single Malt tests the thin ice across from the viewing pier.

A view down-lake to the spillway.

A view of Rocky Knob from the lake. Yes, we're going up there.

The only crossing of pretty Knob Run.

A nice lunch in a shady pine grove.

A group photo at the Quarry Gap Shelter.

Hiking through tunnels of dense rhododendron on the final leg of the hike.
