Hessick Trail

  Finally, hiking time is here again, and Hessick Trail in Centre County, Pennsylvania is a really good place to spend some time. Hessick Trail is a long drive away from Lewistown but there's great natural beauty awaiting you along it. Whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then we recommend Kishacoquillas Creek. Camping is available at Bob Kearns Campgrounds, and there's whitewater on Elk Creek for all you adrenaline junkies. If you came
    for an overnight stay Seven Mountains Campground is a perfect place to camp; Boal Gap is another wonderful site to explore nearby. Here at Hessick Trail there are plenty of people from Centre Hall, and the scenery at Colyer Lake Dam
is beautiful. Summertime brings highs in the 80's to Hessick Trail. Summer nighttime lows plunge down to the 60's.
