I used to do a good amount of backpacking when I was younger but we would always go to the same place right near the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary on the AT. Now that I'm getting into backpacking again i'm looking for some new places to hang! Unfortunately, I totaled my car a little while back so i need to get my family to give me rides to the trailhead and I hate to ask them for rides to the AT because it's like an hour to hour and a half from my house (one way).
Anyone have any recommendations for places to hang (if i could get a good hike in too that would be even better!) near the Philly area (more specifically, Downingtown/westchester)? I was thinking French Creek State Park but you can only camp in their campgrounds and i'm not looking for that.
If you don't know of any places to hang near me, thats fine. I would still love to hear of your favorite places to hang in/around PA and when I finally get a new car i'll be able to check them out!
