22 Mile Spring Thaw Hike

We will hike the Pine Lane Bridle Trail through the ravine and out to Boston, picking up the trail at the Boston Mills Rd intersection to Blue Hen Falls for a quick stop. From there north to the steps at Snowville down and over to the 6.75 mile Red Lock Buckeye Trail  and Valley Trail  back to Red Lock. A  break will happen along the trail during Red Lock at the Buckeye and Valley Bridle split. From Red Lock we will take the towpath south to Boston and pick up the Buckeye Pine Lane via the Turnpike construction access drive.This will be at about a 3 mph pace depending on conditions and elevation changes.  This hike is rated difficult and for advanced hikers only.

Make sure any gear such as tracks, water supply and packs are in working order; bring a sandwich.

    I would like to join for the first 8 miles or so. I am thinking about joining the group at the beginning for the hike from Pine Lane Trailhead to Boston and then take the towpath back, which I think is around 7-8 miles. Would like to see if anyone else is interested in joining me for a shorter hike?

      I am planning it so see you both there tomorrow!

      Did the Buckeye Loop with the group instead due to time constraints. See you next time!

    Lori; you are an intermediate hiker according to your post. I question even you keeping up with this without knowing who you are bringing. Take a map. Please read the posting thoroughly.

    Is the time stated (8 AM to 2:30 PM) just a tentative amount of time for this hike? It's seems a bit short. :-)

    • Wade
