Yeah for the official Half Way Point on the AT. The actual mileage varies from year to year so look for the little marker.
Also the General Store has ICE CREAM. I suffered no ill effects except for not wanting to hike further that day.

This IS a longer hike for an afternoon hike. Get to view some second growth oak trees, and various types of the Pennsylvania forest.
