I love this section of the trail. I will probably spend a few days there again next season. Beautiful scenery and not too rocky, beyond the scramble... compared to other parts of PA

If you do the AT, north loop and south loop, you experience 3 different terrains. The south loop has rock scrambles while the north offers open grassy fields and views of the Lehigh River. The AT is covered by forest. The utilization of the AT and loops can determine how much time or how strenuous you want your experience to be.
