Wyalusing is located on the very bottom west of our state. We are rarely in this area, so we really wanted to make it a point to see this park. It's a shame we couldn't stay longer to explore.
The Old Wagon Trail was originally built to carry wagons from the bluff tops to Walnut Eddy. It is a very forested trail. Most of the trail looks like the top two pictures. We did cross a little stream at one point, and when you near the end of the trail you are actually walking along the side of the bluff and can see pretty views like this through the trees. I would imagine in the fall/winter when the tree foliage is gone, the scenic views will be much more grand.
Most of this trail is fenced off for safety.
As always, my eye was drawn to all the moss covered rocks and ferns growing everywhere.
I was a little nervous getting too close to the cave fearing bats would suddenly fly out.
Coming down the staircase was a little more difficult than climbing up. Hubby suggested I turn around and climb down as if I were on a ladder. That worked much better!
This little side excursion off the trail is called "The Knob". It suddenly comes to a complete stop, so we had to turn around back the way we came.
