Beginning at the Indian Steps trailhead on Harry's Valley Road, this 4-mile hike starts with a difficult ascent over steep, rocky steps. Ascending Tussey Mountain to the ridgeline, we turn left on the Mid State Trail and continue our loop onto Pump Station trail, and back to our starting point. Expect rugged Pennsylvania terrain and a slow climb, followed by an easier walk and early autumn views along the ridge. This 4-mile loop returns you to Harry's Valley Road via the Pump Station Trail.
