This hike is WAY off the beaten path. Awesome views. Narrow trails. Lots of rocks. Cycles up and down.

We will need to shuttle from the kid’s ski slopes and take one or two cars at the most to the trailhead, which is in a residential neighborhood.  This is half of the big loop around the resort which is close to Reid’s Gap and Humpback Rocks.

The route follows the old Appalachian Trail to the Upper Shamokin trail, then continues to Chestnut Springs, Loggers Alley, and Cedar Cliffs.  This takes longer than the miles suggest. Your knees will get a workout. Bring oil!

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

Optional stop for dinner/drinks at Devil’s Backbone on the way back if there is interest.
