Hike the Golden Eagle Trail
Pennsylvania › Golden Eagle Trailhead
Added by Shawn Grenninger
The Golden Eagle Trail is one of the best day hike in Pennsylvania with great views of the Pine Creek Valley.
The Golden Eagle Trail, otherwise known as the GET, is a challenging day hike north of Cammal, Pennsylvania. Hikers have the option of taking the loop clockwise although most would say counter-clockwise is the best. The climb to the first summit, which is the most challenging, brings hikers through forest and alongside grassy meadows. Shortly after cresting the first summit, hikers will reach Raven's Horn, which offers sweeping views of Pine Creek. The trail continues along the ridge and climbs what is known as Wolf Run. This section of the hike offers great views of multiple waterfalls and a hemlock forest. About 5 miles in, hikers will reach Beulahland Vista. From there it's downhill back to the trail head.
Hikers should be prepared for multiple stream crossings, especially if hiking in Spring and early Summer.

I've done this trail a few times over the years, but I like to climb to the Raven's Horn is at the end. This trail is a must for anyone hiking in the pine creek area. f you don't have time for the whole thing the hike to the lookout is well worth it.
