Come join us as we hike the AT. We’ll start at Swatara Gap, hike across the Waterville Bridge and up Blue Mountain, before ‘running the ridge’ to the William Penn Shelter (Water, privy) a total of 8.7 miles. The next morning, we’ll wake up, and hike 2.4 miles out over level ground to PA 645. We should have everyone out by the middle of the morning, plenty of time to hit a diner on the way home! Moderate hike, though there is a significant climb at the beginning of the day Saturday. Limited to 16 backpackers. Hike Leader Kevin Drevik (8 5 6)[masked] or [masked].
We're going to meet at the Turkey Hill convenience store at 134 South Tulpehocken Street in Pine Grove, PA at 9:00am.
From there, we'll drive 3 miles to the first dropoff point, leave half the cars, then drive to our start point and begin hiking. Hopefully, we'll be on the trail by 10am.
