Hike the Appalachian Trail in the Poconos

This week we feature a hike on a scenic stretch of the Appalachian Trail in nearby Pennsylvania.

Trail Conference member and volunteer hike writer Daniela Wagstaff writes: “Appalachian Trail thru-hikers refer to Pennsylvania as ‘Rocksylvania’ because of the amount of jagged, sharp, toe stubbing and ankle twisting rocks on the walking surface.  This portion of the Pennsylvania Appalachian Trail is surprisingly smooth with just a few short rocky sections scattered throughout. Although there is very little elevation change along this ridge hike other than the initial ascent, expect a scramble over jumbled boulders and ledges to reach Wolf Rocks at the end before heading back.
