Thirteen miles of the 85 mile looped Susquehannock hiking trail travels thru the 30 thousand acre Hammersley Wild Area.
The "Hammersley" is the largest roadless area in Pennsylvania & lies in southern Potter County.
Located in Susquehannock State Forest, the 30,253-acre Hammersley Wild Area is a series of wooded valleys containing more than 51 square miles of roadless land.
The wild nature of the lands supports abundant wildlife, and lack of development has produced pristine streams with wild trout.
Although most of the area was logged in the early 1900s, several acres were left untouched and now support old growth hemlock trees three to four feet in diameter.
The entire area is forested with some of the best examples of mature woodland in the Commonwealth.
