Best of Pennsylvania - 1000 Steps Hiking Trail
One of the best places for a hike in Pennsylvania -- 1000 Steps Hiking Trail.
Description below is taken from
Jack's Mountain is home to the famous Thousand Steps which are part of the National Heritage Trail. Jacks Mountain at 2,321 feet is quite a large mountain, especially for Pennsylvania. Also, when you consider that the base to summit elevation gain is 1,715 feet, you'll understand that you've got quite a hoof ahead of you. Jacks Mountain is located in PA's central mountain region, also known as the main range of the Appalachians. This area in Pennsylvania is quite rugged and the mountains are a lot steeper and higher than many people realize when they think of PA.
Located between Lewistown and Huntingdon, PA, this mountain affords magnificent views in all directions from its scree slopes. The little former-mining towns of Mount Union and Mill Creek are at its base. Also, the Juniata River cuts this mountain in two and creates one of the more rugged and spectacular areas in the state, known as Jacks Narrows. You almost get a western feel standing at the trail head as the two mountains rise nearly 2,000 feet above you on either side.
The Thousand Steps Trail is not something to be taken lightly. Just doing the steps themselves (going 1/2 of the way up the mountain) is quite a task on its own. You can compare this venture as an hour and a half work-out on a stair master as you will definitely feel it in your legs once you reach the top.
This mountain is also a geological wonder known for its fossils. There is petrified wood everywhere along this trail. Some of the actual steps themselves are made up of huge chunks of the fossils. This area was heavily mined from 1900-1950 which is partially the reason for the unearthing of all these spectacular fossils. The gully that is climbed by Thousand Steps will remind you of the White Mountains or the west when you see its high and steep ravine-like appearance. That is because it is a glacially carved cirque from the last Ice Age which receded from PA about 10,000 years ago. There are plenty of other signs as well of the area's more recent geology such as the scree slopes that exist everywhere.
All the trails that run through this region are beautiful with nice views, but Thousand Steps is the king. The Link Trail is the longest running trail through this area and it is famous for being the link between the Tuscarora Trail and the Mid-State Trail. From the actual Thousand Steps area though you will have plenty of views and beautiful sights to keep your attention. This mountain is well worth a trip because it has every aspect that an interesting mountain should; history, challenge, views, interesting geology, and relaxation.

Two old guys making the trek to the best fishing spot in PA
It was only a short walk that seemed more than it was, but it was worth it. Here on the little juniata river is some of the best torut fishing any place in PA
The Little Juniata River, sometimes called the Little J, is a river in central Pennsylvania. It is a 32.1-mile-long (51.7 km) tributary of the Juniata River in the Susquehanna River watershed. It is formed at Altoona by the confluence of several short streams. It flows northeast in the Logan Valley at the foot of Brush Mountain.
At Tyrone, the river receives the southern Bald Eagle Creek, then turns abruptly southeast, passing through a water gap between the Brush and Bald Eagle Mountain ridges and enters the Sinking Valley where it receives Sinking Run. Approximately 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, near Petersburg, it joins the Frankstown Branch Juniata River, forming the Juniata River.
In colonial America, the river was used to float freight downriver on boats called arcs. Shipments were placed on board in Birmingham, just east of Tyrone to await water high enough to clear the rocky stream bed. Thus the Little Juniata was (and still is) listed as a commercially Navigable river.
The Little Juniata River is a good spot for fly fishing; It holds a Class A population of wild brown trout and requires no stocking. Former President of the United States Jimmy Carter fishes often at Spruce Creek, a j tributary that enters the j at the village of Spruce Creek

Passion Travel - Top 10 United States Landmarks
Top 10 United States Landmarks
From nature’s loveliest landmarks to incredible man-made marvels, America the Beautiful has some of the world’s most popular sightseeing spots. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 United States landmarks.
For this list, we chose landmarks that are representative of America and its culture, and tried to keep the choices spread out through the country as much as possible.
#10: The Las Vegas Strip
From ornate casinos to death-defying live shows, comedy acts to performances by the world’s top musicians; the Las Vegas Strip symbolizes the glitz and glamor of the American dream. “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas,” the famous sign declares, inviting guests to enjoy all it has to offer. The “Vegas Strip” is also appropriately named – topless showgirls debuted there in the late-‘50s and still perform today!
#9: The Hollywood Sign
Emblematic of Hollywood’s Golden Age, this U.S. landmark has been imitated the world over. Located in LA’s Hollywood Hills, the sign debuted in 1923 as an advertisement for the upscale Hollywoodland housing development, but it quickly became an icon. After the removal of the last four letters in 1949, the sign required constant repairs until it was completely rebuilt in 1978.
#8: The USS Arizona Memorial
Drawing over a million tourists each year, the submerged USS Arizona remains a reminder of the December 7th, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. From a floating bridge, visitors to the Hawaiian monument can view the ship’s remains, which still leak oil to this day. The Memorial pays tribute to the first of thousands of Americans who lost their lives during WWII.
#7: The Grand Canyon
Deemed one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Arizona’s Grand Canyon is a truly majestic sight. At 277-miles long, a mile deep, and at times 18-miles-wide, it’s among the world’s largest landmarks – and with its array of colors, natural structures, flora and fauna, it’s considered among the most beautiful. The Canyon is also populated by several Native-American tribes, making it an important part of American culture.
#6: The Hoover Dam
Nevada / Arizona
At the time, this gargantuan structure was considered one of the world’s greatest engineering feats. Today, the 726-foot-high, quarter-mile-long dam is no less impressive. Spanning the Colorado River between Arizona and Nevada, it was conceived as a way to provide power and water to dry regions in America’s west. The concrete arch-gravity structure is open to the public and draws millions of visitors each year.
#5: Mount Rushmore
South Dakota’s Black Hills are home to four of America’s most iconic presidents: the 60-foot-tall faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt are carved into Mount Rushmore. Although the project exhausted its funding before the Presidents could be carved from the waist-up, more than 450-thousand tons of rock were removed to create their likenesses. It’s a massive monument for passionate patriots across America to enjoy!
#4: Independence Hall
It’s the birthplace of American freedom – Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, where 56 men put their lives and reputations on the line to defy the King of England and declare America’s independence. The Hall remains arranged and decorated as it was during the Constitutional Convention. Both the Declaration and the Constitution were signed in Independence Hall, whose famous bell tower once housed another of America’s national symbols, the Liberty Bell.
#3: The Golden Gate Bridge
This project realized a century-old dream: to span the three-mile-long Golden Gate Strait, the entrance to San Francisco Bay from the Pacific. Built between 1933-37, the stunning bridge was painted “orange-vermillion” to blend with the warm landscape and contrast the blue waters below. Billions of cars have crossed it, and millions more admire its contribution to the San Francisco skyscape.
#2: The Statue of Liberty
Since 1886, Lady Liberty has greeted immigrants and travelers to New York City, standing tall in times of prosperity and tragedy. The Statue of Liberty is more than a landmark – she represents a nation’s hopes and dreams. Broken shackles at her feet symbolize freedom from oppression, and her tablet marks the birth of American Independence. If there’s one monument that encapsulates the American Dream, it’s the nation’s 305-foot-tall torchbearer!
#1: The National Mall : Washington D.C.
