New York Backpackers Message Board › New Meetup: Families and Beginners; The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania!
When: Friday, July 8, 2011 5:30pm
Where: Stony Fork Creek Campground
658 Stony Fork Creek Road
About the Meetup:
Often described as “ The Crown Jewel of Pennsylvania,” Pine Creek Gorge – The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania – winds its way through a vast wilderness landscape of breathtaking beauty that will capture your imagination and renew your spirit. The 47-mile long, 1,000 ft. deep gorge is no ordinary place, nor is a visit to Pennsylvania’s “Grand Canyon” ever ordinary.
This is a family and beginner friendly camping meetup. We will be car-camping at a very nice campground and hiking or biking in and around the Pine Creek Gorge. Full camping gear is required unless you reserve a cabin.
