    Eastern States 100 - Saturday, August 11th, 2018 - A world class wilderness trail experience in one of the most remote sections of the Pennsylvania Wilds. Only the hardiest of runners will complete this circumnavigation of Pine Creek. The largest creek in the United States.  The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. The Iroquois called it Tiadaghton – the River of Pines.  Or is it the Lost or Bewildered River?  After 100 miles of multiple 900 – 1200 foot climbs and equally punishing descents, the second definition will seem appropriate.
