Among the feature articles in the summer 2015 River Issue of Susquehanna Life magazine is Hiking in St. Anthony’s Wilderness, by Darrin Youker.

Framed by two mountains, roughly following the arc of Interstate 81, Stony Valley is one of the last truly wild places in Central Pennsylvania.

You can access a video about the site below this story.

And we’ve arranged for Paul Shaw, of the Otzinachson chapter of the Sierra Club, to lead a hike of St. Anthony’s Wilderness on June 7.

St. Anthony’s Wilderness Hike, Appalachian Trail, Lebanon and Dauphin Counties

15.5 miles, strenuous/very strenuous. St. Anthony’s Wilderness is the 2nd-largest roadless tract in Pennsylvania. However, 150 years ago, this area was bustling with coal mines, several towns and villages, and a stagecoach road that connected them.

Our hike, along the world-famous Appalachian Trail, traverses this historic and beautiful area. Highlights include the abandoned ruins of Yellow Springs and Rausch Gap villages and numerous vestiges of old coal mining activity. Although the terrain is not difficult, the hike is long. Bring water and lunch. Meet at K-Mart parking lot on Rt. 15 in Shamokin Dam at 8:30 am or at Sheetz on Rt. 322 near Duncannon at 9:15 am. Leader: Paul Shaw, pshaw@ptd.net; 717-215-8339.
