The Black Forest Trail is a 42-mile backpacking loop in PA's Tiadaghton State Forest. It is widely considered to be one of the most scenic and challenging trails in the state. There are several steep climbs (think 1000' in less than a mile), and the possibility for wet stream crossings. This hike is NOT for beginners.
We'll start Wednesday evening and hike 5-6 miles to a decent camp site. We'll play the exact mileage splits by ear, but there's pretty much no avoiding 20+ miles on Thursday and mileage in the mid to high teens on Friday. Please be confident in your fitness and skill level before signing up for this hike. I am planning to get early starts on Thursday and Friday mornings (hike out absolutely no later than 8AM).
Pertinent information about the trail can be found HERE.
No beginners will be allowed on this hike.
