Boiling Springs has been recognized as Pennsylvania’s first Appalachian Trail Community, a designation created to honor communities that are friendly to and perfect for hikers along the Appalachian Trail. Today we will set out on a long hard hike. I really enjoyed this hike because it has a bunch of pretty features. Set along the historic midpoint of the trail (it moved when the trail was rerouted), we will start our hike in Boiling Springs walking past the old foundry and through the picturesque farm fields at its border.
Heading into the woods we get a nice rolling trail that lends you some heart pounding climbs followed by relaxing descents. Our trail will cross seasonal streams until we summit our final hill, to find a natural rock maze. It is a fun place to wander among the rocks, weaving along a section of the trail that must have been laid with the curiosity of childhood in mind. No straight lines here, we go through every crevice.
After a quick descent we will reach our cars and head back into Boiling Springs where we can discover why it is so special to through hikers. (As a point to point hike, we will have to ditch some cars at each end of the trail and carpool back).
