Yost Run Trail Loop

Chuck Keiper Trail
6.94 Miles
Centre, Clinton

Trail Description

The Yost Run Trail Loop utilizes the Chuck Keiper and Eddy Lick Trails in Centre and Clinton Counties. The trail head is just south of the Clinton County/Centre County line along the western side of route 144. This trail traverses some of the prettiest scenery the state has to offer: lush mountain laurel and rhododendron, rushing waters, Yost Run Falls, large trees and steep rocky hillsides. All this adds up to a sensory experience of being in the wilderness, a place where you check the trail behind you for no apparent reason. Difficulty rating is moderate due to length and some steep climbs. Terrain is rugged, with trails cut along steep rocky hillside. Hikers should watch their footing in some sections of this trail. Step wide off the downhill side of the trail and it would be a fast slide into the creek below. Show respect for all wildlife encountered along the trail. The trail climbs 1,000 feet over one mile as you leave Yost Run. Carry drinking water. Upon reaching Route 144, turn right and follow the road south back to parking area.
