Intermediate Weekend Backpack on the AT in Pennsylvania:

Details

First backpacking trip of the season with Kevin. Moderate hike, with rock scrambling and a 900ft climb. Close to Maryland border, so hopefully it won’t be too cold. We will park half the cars at the end, drive to the start, and get going. Sites include views from the top of Chimney rocks, and Snowy Mtn Firetower, plus Waynesboro reservoir.
• Sat: Drive to start (3 hour drive from Cherry Hill). Start with 900ft climb over 2 miles to Chimney rocks, then minor ups & downs to Rocky Mountain Shelter. Total of 7.0 miles for day.
• Sun: Hike 3.5 miles down to Caledonia State Park (drop 600 ft). Some difficult rock scrambling as we descend.

Weather could be cold, so make sure you pack for it. Temps could get down below freezing.

Hike limited to 18 people. Hike Leader is Kevin Drevik (856) 630-2485 or kdrevik@aol.com.
