Bucktail Trail Scenic Byway

State Route 120
Lock Haven, PA 17764
Phone: 888-388-6991
Region: Pennsylvania Wilds

This Byway stretches for 100 miles through the Sproul and Elk State Forests located in north-central PA from Lock Haven to Ridgway. This Byway follows the Old Sinnemahoning Trail used by Native Americans to travel between the West Branch Susquehanna and Allegheny Rivers. The Byway is named after the Bucktail Rangers, a famous Regiment of woodsmen that traveled this route to join the Union during the Civil War. Seven State Parks are within reach of this Byway with access to hundreds of miles of remote hiking trails and many other outdoor recreational activities. The unspoiled forestlands, beautiful hills and steep valleys are breathtaking at any time of the year but especially during the fall, when the foliage is alive with blazing colors. Watch for hang gliders as you near Hyner View and the majestic Elk as you travel northwest of Renovo. Elk viewing sites are nearby at Winslow Hill and Sinnemahoning State Park.
