Allegheny National Forest - Brush Hollow XC Ski Trail Reviews

My favorite trail!

I live close to this trail so I frequent often. There are multiple loops to accomidate different levels of skiing and hiking. It is very scenic since it runs along Mill Creek. There is also a connecting trail along a rail road grade to Twin Lake State Park. It is a little rough for skiing since the RR ties are still in the ground. Better to ski on the loops for easy access along the creek or tougher trails up and down the hills. Hunting in this area to wear orange in season. I think there is last harvest fishing in Mill Creek but you need to check this out on your own.

There is at least one geocache along the trail... HAVE FUN!
