The Bald Eagle Mountain Megatransect is a 26+ mile/hike and trail run event staged in Central Pennsylvania. The outstandingly beautiful course offers unique geologic features, such as an unrelenting boulder field of white Tuscarora sandstone. Cliffs line a scenic gorge to heights of 300 feet that sink from the Chestnut flat plateau. Trails run along miles of streams and brooks with multiple stream crossings and small waterfalls.

Oneonta Gorge is one of the many wonders of the National Scenic Area. It is not accessible by trail. Rather you must walk up the creek bed, over a large and perhaps unstable log jam, through the gorge, and up to your waist in water until you finally see falls. Lower Oneonta Falls probably dropped just under 100ft in a backdrop surrounded by steep vertical-walled cliffs and fronted by clear pools. The water was so clear that I even noticed fish swimming amidst the submerged rocks.
Distance: 3.3 miles (5.3km)
