Hike the Shades of Death Trail

1 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Hickory Run Park Office - Search Nearby - Added by Jennifer White

This beautiful hike follows along Sand Spring Run with views of waterfalls, rhododendron thickets and unique rock formations.

The trailhead and parking are available by the park office or along PA 534 by the nature center and amphitheater. This trail is beautiful and seemed to change around every bend. Sand Spring Run flows alongside the entire trail. Rock formations and rhododendron mix with remains of a logging mill and dam to add to the gorgeous environment. This trail is only a mile long but navigating around the rocks will make it seem longer. The dam would be a great place to stop for a picnic and enjoy the scenery.

Shades Of Death

A really pretty trail. Pretty easy hike.

Very Easy

A short, scenic. Pretty but not difficult.

Challenging. Fun. Beautiful.

Engulfed in the woods with the stream right by your side. Good experience.
