Seven Tubs - Mountaintop

Status: Planned Future linkage and trail development

The Basics: The proposed trail will be located in the secluded, wooded mountains just east of the city of Wilkes Barre. Users will find this a quiet and shady section of forested trail.  The highlight of this section is the Seven Tubs Nature Area, a series of large pools carved by the free flowing water of Wheelbarrow Run.

The Details: Although portions of this section may be passable on foot or mountain bike, this section has not been improved and is not officially open for use.
