One of my favorite sections of the AT in the area. This is a very rocky section, but if your definition of fun is getting on all fours to scramble across a rock field (The Knife's Edge) then this hike is for you. Definitely check out Bear Rocks. The climb is worth the panoramic views you get at the top. If you're camping out, I would highly recommend the campsite just beyond New Tripoli; just beyond the power lines when hiking south.
