The PCTA designed, created and administers a network of multipurpose trails and trailheads encompassing the Smethport, Pennsylvania Wilds region. It also maintains a close association with the Seneca Highlands Snowmobile Club.
This trail system directly connects to the Allegheny National Forest and surrounding McKean County trail systems. Here’s what some visitors had to say about their experience.
