Little Rocky Glen, PA

Little Rocky Glen - Countryside Conservancy

GPS Coordinates 41.55436, -75.83380
I believe you are supposed to park at the pull out parking on the other side of the bridge on Lithia Valley Road and walk back but I saw cars parked where I am in Google Earth and there is plenty of room for 2-3 cars without blocking the gate so I took a chance and parked there since nobody else was around.

HIKE DISTANCE:  .65 miles
Hiked together with Endless Mountain Nature Center - 8.25 miles (17.4 miles away)

This short hike was right on the way home.  The first part was not at all wheelchair friendly so I thought I would see if Shawnee could do it without her wheelchair and she did!
We started off to the left of the kiosk with returning via the road grade on the right.
This trail was a high, narrow ledge high above South Branch Tunkhannock Creek and it was simply gorgeous.
The trail comes out at a structure ...
... which is a nice picnic shelter.
Continuing around the picnic shelter are benches at the creek.
Shawnee was even able to scale some rock slabs at creek level,
We continued on around the mowed field following the creek downstream.
Then we looped back around to the picnic pavilion side of the field.
No wheelchair!  That is fine for a short hike but pretty amazing that she just hiked over 8 miles right before this hike.
Heading back on the road grade.
Back at the beginning.
