Description

Meander beside the blue-green depths of the Green Peter Reservoir and the Quartzville Creek National Wild and Scenic River as you discover a pathway of old-growth forests, highlighted with a varied collection of wildflowers and startling reds and golds of autumn foliage.

Paralleling the winding river of Quartzville Creek, the Quartzville Creek Back Country Byway provides glimpses of old growth forest, wildlife and opportunities to pan for gold, fish or kayak in the waters of the creek.

Camp out against the protection of a rocky outcropping, filch a few sweet summer berries from the huckleberry patches that dot the roadway, or make a bundle of sweet smelling wildflowers to remind your of your trip along this scenic road.
