Hike to Brown Hollow Ruins and Mt. Brown Summit

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Note:  If you put your name on the waiting list then you will get an email inviting you to decide whether or not you are going to join in this hike a few days before the hike.  The first 12 people who respond to that email will be listed as participants in the hike. Those who don't respond to the email will remain on the waiting list which will then operate as a normal waiting list.

    I go on these hikes whether or not anyone else joins in, but I need to know if others are joining as I will wait at the trailhead for late arriving participants.

    Well, I’m not certain there are any ruins there, but the topo map shows a cleared area at the end of the old Brown Hollow Road, which I assume was a structure of some sort. But first we will visit the summit of Brown Mountain.

    This hike will start at the NCT parking lot on Rt. 346 in PA. We will follow the NCT/FLT past the state line, then bushwhack up and along the ridge headed to the summit of Brown Mountain. On Brown Mountain we will find a USGS Benchmark. A group of us were there in the fall of 2012. There is an illegally marked trail that is poorly located. It is much easier just to bushwhack along the top of the ridge.

    We will then return along the same route until we get back to the FLT. From there we hike along a ridge to the location of the “ruins” and return on the FLT back to the parking lot.

    A waiver of liability will be required.  You can download it, fill it in on your computer, then return it to me by email.  Failure to return the waiver will preclude you from participating in this hike.  Here is the link to the release form: Release of Liability
