Had hiked from parking lot on 501 out to just before decline down to Swatara Gap (had gone up the incline on previous day). Would have to say this was quite a boring stretch of trail with not much variety or change of scenery. Have done several stretches of AT northern of this stretch in PA so in comparison to those this was my least favorite. There is one spot that may have been somewhat a lookout but not worth the hike to get there. Though there is Kimmel Lookout which is a very brief hike from Rt 501 parking lot. Don't recall too many rocks, so may have that going for it, but that's about it.
