Saturday Drive

Looking like ill be on Daddy daycare Saturday. With the warmer than normal weather, I think I may head north with the kid (14 Month Old) and travel some roads in search of for sale signs. Moshannon State Forest/ Benezette/ Sinnemahoning area. Probably take the pack along and hike the Kunes Camp Trail in the Quehanna wild area. (Looks pretty neat, it takes you to a site where a camp used to be build between 2 giant rocks.)

Any Trails or Roads you all suggest to take?

Happy Holidays to everyone. Stay safe!

Anywhere in the area is good. Hopefully this warm weather will melt off the roads though. I came home from there yesterday and there were some pretty icy patches on some roads.

Was a nice day for a ride.
Only found one camp to call about and the location was in close proximity to some other camps, therefor not being interested in it. I hiked Kunes Camp trail, which is really neat to see. This was a camp build back in the early 1900’s constructed between two large boulders that served as walls for the structure. The camp was abandoned in the 1950’s when the land was purchased by Curtiss Wright for testing of peaceful uses for nuclear energy.
This was a neat destination to see and is only about 1 mile off the main road. Located just south of the intersection of Quehanna highway and Wykoff run road.

that was the route I took to camp as a kid with my father and grand father. always been a special road to me. Pap would always make us stop at the waterfalls. I think he just had to use the facilities and that was his eexcuse, although they are very pretty.

My grand father working pipeline in that area back in the day. At one point the bridge across from the willows washed out and he had to cross the creek in a old bronco or jeep. They always said he opened the doors and let the water run through the car.
