Honestly... all things considered, especially the kid factor, it seems like your plans might be a bit ambitious. The combination of portaging (with a family's worth of less than lightweight gear),...

Just got back from this trip last night. Was epic and amazing. Parts of the Loyalsock Trail feel as if it is straight out of Lord of the Rings. Definitely one of my favorite PA trails.

Yeah, Spuytenduivel is a neat area. The narrow valley feels wild and remote, more so than much of the rest of the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness. There is a single designated tent site on the brook right...

The closest that the general public can drive to Deer Pond is the gate that is about a quarter mile north of the pond itself. From there it's a relatively easy carry/wheel down to the pond itself. ...

Wolf Pond is nice. The lean-to has been there for a while now (since before 2017) but the trail in particular was only declared "complete" and marked a few years ago. My first visit to Wolf Pond...
