    hiked this in 2012...it was meant to be a thru hike but partner got sick so we had to leave right about the half way point. I went back 2 years later and finished it. One of the crown jewels in US places to backpack.

    Short steep climbs with level grades in between. We did this as an overnight with a side trip into Ketchum Run Gorge, which I highly recommend. There is a west facing campsite at the edge of the gorge that the trail passes by. If you want to be treated to an amazing sunset, camp here. You can also hike down into the gorge. There is a small waterfall there. Very nice outing.

    I did South Loop as an overnight. Parked car at lot on Bushkills Falls Road at Flat Ridge Road since my overnight destination was to camp along Bushkill Creek. This divided the loop almost equally in half. West side of loop is wetter and characteristic of wetlands. Expect wet feet. Tricky stream crossings due to recent rains and snowmelt causing higher water levels over what would normally have been a simple rock hop, but there are bridges over the larger streams. East side is higher and drier through logging activity areas, down and up small ridges. The best camping is along south end by Bushkill Creek and Red Rock Run although you are free to camp anywhere along the loop. If you are a hammock hanger, you have even more options. The footpath is typical PA rocky footing, tedious at times . Good winter destination in my opinion because it is obvious where trail could become overgrown quickly with plenty of ticks and mosquitoes in other times of the year. A good example of PA wetlands if you have never experienced it. Also deciduous trees dominant - should be pretty in fall. Plenty of water sources and solitude ( at least this particular weekend in February). I only saw one dayhiker on my way out from camp. Day 1 mileage 8.5 miles. Day 2 mileage 9.7 miles. Next time, I might explore the side trails into the swamps and natural areas.
