We'll hike the Appalachian Trail through the southern half of Pennsylvania from the Mason-Dixon Line on the Maryland border to Swatara Gap and I-81. That's 115 miles out of the 230 miles that the AT runs in Pennsylvania.
This hike is concurrent with the Shenandoah National Park hike. We'll all drive over (and back) together. While one group hikes the SNP, we will hike in Pennsylvania. It things go as hoped, the PA group will also tour the Gettysburg National Military Park too.
The Appalachian Trail through the southern half of PA is relatively flat and relatively easy hiking, however due to the short daylight hours and need to average about 15 miles a day, this hike might be difficult for out-of-shape beginners. Speak with Raymond if you have questions.
Hopefully, we'll get to see some fall colors as the leaves begin to change and have nice moderate-to-cool hiking temperatures.
We will return to Nashville on Sunday, October 28th, with the Shenandoah National Park hike group.
Anyone who can't do the whole ten days is welcome to join us for any portion they'd like.
Check back for further details and updates.
