Distance: 44 miles Topo/GPS Map
Cross Rt. 6 and continue .5 miles on Webster Road to the Pine Creek Bike Path. Turn left onto the bike path and continue 22 miles to the Village of Blackwell. The scenery in Pine Creek Canyon is very dramatic with many views of towering 1,000' high canyon walls. Be sure to look for eagles along the way. The eagles nest about 4.0 miles below the Tiaghdaton picnic grounds. With some luck, someone will be around to point out the nest to you. Get off the bike path at the Village of Blackwell turning left onto Rt. 414.
Blackwell is a nice place to stop for lunch. Rt. 414 is a paved state road and carries a lot of traffic especially during weekends so be careful of the traffic. Continue east 3.7 miles on Rt. 414 until you come to the Stony Fork Road. Turn left on the Stony Fork Road. The bridge over Babbs Creek is gone so you have to wade the creek here. The water is 6" to 12" deep. Continue 6.6 miles up Stony Fork Road. A couple of miles up the road you come to a series of the best swimming holes in the area. In general, wherever there is a clear parking area and a path to the stream, there is a nice swimming hole. At this point in the ride, I love to jump into cool refreshing Stony Fork Creek.
After you exit the woods and go through some farm country, you come to the Village of Draper and the intersection with Kelsey Street. Turn right onto Kelsey Street and continue 7.0 miles back to Wellsboro. The ride up Kelsey Street is a long gradual uphill. Not really much of a problem. Also, the road carries a fair amount of traffic so be careful here as well.
Shortly after entering Wellsboro, you intersect with West Avenue. Turn right and continue .6 miles back to the Green to complete the ride.
