Starting in Elk County, Pennsylvania Wilds is a two-day, two-night road trip through state parks and scenic wildlife viewing areas. Here a bull elk grazes on state game lands in Benezette Township, Elk County.

Before the snow flies, there might be time for one more scenic road trip.

Pennsylvania Wilds is a two-day, two-night trek that takes nature lovers through state parks, wildlife viewing areas and hiking trails in the northwest and north-central portions of the Commonwealth, according to visitpa.com.

Starting at the Elk County Visitor Center, the first day takes travelers to Quehanna Wild Area, Marion Brooks Natural Area and Monument and Beaver Run Dam Wildlife Viewing Area.

The second day is spent in Bald Eagle State Park, which includes Sayers Lake, hiking trails, beautiful views and the Nature Inn, a 16-room lakeside lodge featuring works by local artists and access to a bird sanctuary.

VisitPA also gives recommendations for restaurants and lodgings along the way.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
