Introductory Backpack - Rocky Knob-Quarry Gap, PA

Enjoy a nice 14+ mile Pennsylvania backpack with 1700 feet of elevation gain. This is a circuit along trails, old woods and, yes, a few rocky stretches running through Michaux State Forest. We'll take the Rocky Knob Trail past the Long Pine Run Reservoir and camp at the Birch Run Shelter, returning by the Appalachian Trail the next day.

Severe weather cancels. We'll carpool from the Twinbrook Metro station on Saturday morning, back by late afternoon on Sunday. Registration is required. Please contact the organizer before attending this event.

Michaux State Forest



Update: Scouted this Saturday 22 March.  Good well-marked trail with some mild climbing.  Great for a first backpack, or just to enjoy and take in the sites.
