About Clark Run Gorge:

Located in the Charles F. Lewis Natural Area, there are some nice sized boulders at the bottom of the hill. At the top of the hill is a cliff face topping out at about 30 feet or so, with at least one bolted line. The bolts look really old, and I wouldn't use them. They look pretty old and not too safe. The long hike up to the top of the hill and lack of nice rock doesn't make it really worth the trip. There are tons of blueberry bushes at the top of the cliff face and a fire ring and a few nice trails for a nice day hike.
Nearest town or city: Cramer
Driving south on Rt 403 from Rt 22 go through the village of Cramer. Once you pass a bar called Joyland the road will snake for about 1/4 to 1/2 a mile and there will be a large gravel parking area on the left.
Coming north on Rt 403 from Johnstown, before you enter Cramer look for the parking lot on your right. If you get to the bar Joyland, you've gone too far.
Park in the lot, and follow the trail. Take the left in the first split in the trail and follow the yellow blazes across a plank over the small creek. There are some boulders at the bottom of the hill. Follow the trail to the top of the ridge and there will be rocks and a cliff face on your left. Enjoy.
