Ascent Trip ReportSuch a great hike up the Tuscarora trail from cowans gap state park to the big mountain/tower road vista. Something like 3.9 miles up and then 3.9 miles down, Tuscarora from cowans gap to about where it turns into a logging/forest road is quite unmaintained be warned underbrush growth is extensive and bordering on almost impassible. Almost wish i had brought a machete with. Glorious views from big mountain vista by far the best view i have seen in my hikes up pa's mountains.
