Or meet at our home, 24 Pheasant Drive, Bernville, PA 19506 by 5:30 p.m. .
This is on Mountain Road, Tilden Township, Berks County, PA. We will be hiking UP the service road to the Auburn Overlook and perhaps do a loop on the AT and service roads. Maximum distance is 5 miles, but likely shorter.
The best way to get there is to take I-78 to the Shartlesville Exit, # 23. Turn towards Loves on Mountain Road. Stay on Mountain Road for several miles until you see a sign for the state game lands on the left. Park and hike.
This is a steep continuous climb from the base of Blue Mountain to the top of the ridge. Be prepared for plunging air temperatures.
If the weather is ugly, we may just drink home brew at our house. I will post a note by mid-day on the day of the hike regarding weather.
This is not a beginners hike! It is a tough climb up the mountain to the Auburn Overlook. Although the footing is good, the hill is STEEP!
