A hike along the Mountain View Trail will provide a southwestern view along the Appalachian Plateau from the Pavia Overlook. This is a trail for the more experienced hiker and mountain biker. The trail begins east of the Willow Springs Picnic Area heading northeast then loops around Beaverdam Creek at about 2 miles. It swings back down to reach an overlook at about 3 miles then another overlook at 3.5 miles. At this point the trail turns north again traveling almost to the edge of the park before heading back down to the Willow Springs Picnic Area. This trail is for hikers and mountain bikers only. Note: Just before the first overlook, there is a small foot path which bisects the woods and leads to the other sides of this trail.

Directions: From Spring Hill, PA, Travel east on SR 164 about 8 - 10 miles. Turn right (south) onto SR 869 and travel it about 8 miles to the state park. After entering the park, turn left on Knob Road then turn right onto Whysong Road and follow it to Willow Springs Overlook and Picnic Area. Trail begins on the east side of the picnic area.

Difficulty: Strenuous
