DESCRIPTION: (includes instructions, what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions)
This is a 14-16 miles AT hike with plenty of rocks, hills and stream crossings. The hike begins with a 1.8 mile climb with the reward of a 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 by Sands Springs and the last mile is a beautiful wooded trail. 72 mile drive with tolls, plus shuttle. Meet at Brandywine Town Center for a 7 a.m. departure. Due to terrain this can be a long day. Bad weather moves this to a local hike at BCSP. Please contact the leader if you plan to meet at the trail head.
