If you do go stay at the lean-to that is some distance up the Cold River (located where the Calkins Creek joins the Cold River), bring a tarp... at present it's possible to star gaze through the roof...

There is a designated tent site but it's kind of hard to find as it isn't particularly close to the lean-to. It's across the river, on the west bank. As I recall it's also some distance...

Nice report. I have a half-finished trip report from my Spring 2021 Quehanna Trail thru-hike saved somewhere... maybe I'll finally get around to finishing it sometime this summer.

I'd say it was a bit easier of a hike than Goodnow, with somewhat less impressive views. Which is not to say that the views from Swede are bad by any measure, it just doesn't have that same 360...

Much of this particular route is not legally open to mountain bikes, as it is located within the boundaries of the High Peaks Wilderness. Bikes can be ridden up to the dam at the outlet of Boreas...
