The East Fork Stony Fork Creek Campground provides a good base to explore this area. In addition to having camping and parking sites, it also provides access to the Seven Sisters Trail, which follows East Fork Stony Fork Creek. The main attraction to the area is the large number of mature white pines found along the creek and next to Rt. 717, just northeast of the Seven Sisters Trailhead. These pines provide habitat for Blackburnian warbler. Other species more typical of mid-elevation, mixed deciduous forests frequent the campground and surrounding habitat.
From the Seven Sisters Trailhead on Rt. 717 continue northeast on Rt. 717 for 3.3 miles to the sign on the left. There are two additional pullouts along Rt. 717 in the 2.6 miles between the campground and the Seven Sister Trailhead.
