Cowans Trail

  It's a long drive from Chambersburg to Cowans Trail but trails like these are great. Pennsylvania is a great outdoors state. Get yourself into a kayak and hit Licking Creek; a short visit to House Spring is always worthwhile. Burnt Cabins Grist Mill Ye Olde Mill Campground is a good local campground, and why not take a little spree to Bricker Run while you're here. Cowans Trail is next to Cowans Gap which is beyond doubt worth going to, and a spree to Cowans
    Trail wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Gum Spring. If you came for an overnight stay Mountain Lake Cabins is a delightful spot to camp, and at Cowans Trail you always meet someone from Fort Loudon. That right there is
a load already, but it keeps on going; Cowans Trail has it all. If you come at the right time of year, Big Cove Creek offers some fine whitewater. Summertime brings highs in the 80's to Cowans Trail, and all through the night it cools down to the 60's. Through the wintertime this place gets highs in the 30's while Cowans Trail night low temperatures all through the winter are in the 10's. The annual rainfall here at Cowans Trail is about average.
