What is the Tuscarora Trail?

Created in the 1960s as an alternative to the Appalachian Trail, the Tuscarora Trail runs 250 miles from Northern Virginia to Pennsylvania.

The trail departs the AT near mile 21 of Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park and rejoins the AT near Duncannon, Pennsylvania. Along the way, you hike long stretches along the Massanutten Range that parallels the AT to the west, stroll along dirt roads and through woodlands. It’s a terrific lesser-known trail to explore.

Jeffrey H Ryan is an author, adventurer, photographer and historian. He has written several books about his outdoor exploits, his fascination with hiking trails and the people and places found just off the beaten path. His debut book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year hike on America's trail was hailed by the former Executive Editor of National Geographic as "a classic of nature and travel writing" and set off a national tour (in a 1985 VW camper, no less). His books are known for weaving a deep appreciation for history into walks across contemporary landscapes that give readers the feeling they are hiking right alongside. When Jeff isn't trekking, chasing down a great story or spinning yarns from his keyboard, he enjoys sharing his adventures with audiences who love the outdoors. He spends much of his time in his beloved native state of Maine.
