Great views along the way and at the end of this hike. Great work out also.

This is a very strenuous hike. It is equivelant to a 1 hour stair master workout. There are plenty of places to rest though and look at the great views that this hike has to offer.

This is also a geocacher friendly hike.

Parking for this hike will be in a wide area along RT22 approx. 1.3 miles west of Mount Union, PA. The trail head will be at the eastern most part of the parking area. There is a sign that will say "Thousand Steps" trail.

Very good workout. short enough that you can do it in an hour...difficult enough that you are getting a thorough workout. Not recommended for those with weak knees or ankles.

This can be an excellent cardio workout. Better than a stepper.

LOVE this climb! Make sure you go the whole way to the top...past the stone structure...and around the side of the mountain...this is where you will find the view worth "wobbly-legs" :)

Jack's Narrows is more of a " climb" than a hike. The climb begins immediately you pull off side of road and the ascend to the top is a work-out. The rugged "steps" continue straight up. Gotta be in decent shape to make it to the top. ( but views are well worth it!) along the way you'll see an a large stone structure used by miners. At the top an amazing view of the rivers below and railroad.!the boulder filled mountains are interesting and the history behind jacks mountain is also very interesting! To think these miners climbed this everyday is impressive. At the summit there are paths leading through fragrant pines and areas to just sit and admire the beauty!

The most amazing thing about this trail is the difficulty of the experience today was an everyday event for the worker's that built them. Many people use the trail as part of thier exercise routine as well as organizations for social gatherings. My daughter, Brianna, invited me to come along with her youth group from church. It has a great history and the vistas are amazing! The fellowship we had at the top made it all the more worthwhile. Going down is the most difficult because of the uneveness of the steps, be careful but don't let it deter you from the trip, it is well worth it.
