Poe Paddy Hike

IMG_3116I snapped a few photos while hiking the rail trail along Penns Creek at the base of Poe Paddy Mountain.

The scenery wore it’s winter colors except for a few spots where springtime green appeared.

But a walk in the woods is always beautiful and relaxing.

Mountain laurel hung over the trail creating a magical feeling of walking though a fairy land.

The old railway tunnel rebuilt and now safe. A metal corrugated tube  arches around the top and sides, shrinking the original size of the tunnel. A concrete floor makes it an easy hike. But take a flashlight, very little light permeates the middle section.

A new span replaces the original railroad bridge across Penns Creek.

A few signs of spring popped up here and there.
