Good section for a weekend getaway. This is a fairly nice section to hike. The trail runs along the top of a ridge and there are a few scenic overviews. There are two shelters on this section. The 501 shelter is very close to the parking lot. The William Penn Shelter is ~4 miles south of the 501 Shelter.
