We didn't get there by train - SilvrSurfr took a train to Newark and we drove to PA from there.
It's definitely a pretty area. There were plenty of camping spots along the trail. 2Question's suggestion of hanging in the gorge at the base of the Bohen Run was an awesome one. I just wish we could have gotten there earlier and had time to make a fire. The night sky was nice and dark too.
The one thing neither of us thought to take pictures of is the manual water pump at the Bradley Wales picnic area. We worked our butts off after hiking 12 wet miles to fill our water bottles. It would have made a funny video clip.
Much of the trail was covered with fallen leaves. It was definitely a chore to stay on the path at times. There weren't a whole lot of ups and downs, but for a guy like me who hasn't been able to do big miles in a while, the hills kicked my butt while SilvrSurfr chugged along smoking a cigarette. Kind of annoying, really.
After 7+ hours of hard hiking on the last day, we had a nice burger and a beer while watching some football - always a post hike treat.
SilvrSurfr is a fun guy to hike with - a quick wit and a good story teller.
