Pinnacle Overlook

Pinnacle Road, Holtwood, Pennsylvania 17532 USA

“offering a breathtaking view of the Susquehanna River valley”

Accessible from the Holtwood Recreation Area and from Pinnacle Overlook, this trail system provides six miles of loop trails with scenic hiking in the Kelly's Run Natural Area. The trail is a National Recreation Trail. Kelly's Run Trail is four miles long. It takes approximately 2½ hours for an experienced hiker to complete. Although this trail is challenging, requiring careful footing over rocks and some steep climbs, the scenery makes it well worth the effort. The trail follows Kelly's Run as it works its way to the Susquehanna River, passing through deep cliffs of Wissahickon schist. Along the trail you can see a broad diversity of plants dominated by ancient hemlocks, chestnut, oak, rhododendron and mountain laurel, Pennsylvania's state flower. Kelly's Run is one of many areas PPL has designated as a "natural area," which means the area will remain protected in its natural state. Pinnacle Overlook offers a breathtaking view of the Susquehanna River valley. It's the perfect place for a picnic. It has water and toilet facilities. The overlook is located on the east side of the Susquehanna River, just off River Road via Pinnacle Road.
