We did this in November and had so much fun at the Doyle that it seemed like a good excuse to do it again... Soooo.....
On Saturday we will meet in Duncannon PA and shuttle cars down to the ATC headquarters at Boiling Springs. We will hike 14.5 miles north to the Darlington Shelter. The majority of this day is very flat terrain. We will have an 800 ft climb right before the shelter. Water during this section can be 'iffy' so we will fill up when we can.
On Sunday we will continue hiking north into Duncannon. We will have a few ups and downs, but the mileage will only be about 12.5 miles. We will then shuttle back to the car at Boiling Spring. Again water can be 'iffy' so we will fill up when we can. Hopefully we will get to see the views that we missed the last time due to the bad weather.
We will have our post hike carbs at one of the more famous places on the AT - the doyle hotel..(the food is excellent!!!! and the owners are very hiker friendly) for those of you wanting a unique experience, you may want to head down Friday night and spend a night there... (you can meet me at the bar.....)
