DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
This is an AT hike with plenty of rocks, hills and stream crossing. The hike begins with a 1.8 mile climb with the reward of great view of the valley. We will continue the ups and downs and rocks that are the AT in Pennsylvania. The descent starts with a tricky trail in, around and over Sands Springs; but the last mile is a beautiful wooded, rocks-free trail. 72 mile drive with tolls, plus shuttle. Possible ice cream stop on the way home. Meet at Brandywine Town Center for a 7 a.m. departure. For more information or to meet at the trailhead, call leader.
