    Parking and other info for 2011 Spring MAHHA, Pine Grove Furnace State Park, PA

    The MAHHA thread has gotten a bit long due to all the interest! The parking map is hard to find in the thread so I thought I’d post it here

    Spring MAHHA, April 29-May 1, 2011. Parking map here. 2Q's instructions: There are several parking areas in the immediate area. Those that have displays to setup may want to park closest to the furnace stack. Most will probably want to park up at the group camping area or in the main horseshoe parking lot to the east.

    The website for the state park is here. Maps, directions and lots of other info.

    Park info on the hang is here.

    WEATHER INFO HERE. Bug-Bait is the official MAHHA weather prognosticator. He's predicting perfect weather and he hasn't been wrong for a MAHHA hang yet!

    Thanks HC. This is a big help, especially with the change from our usual venue.

    The address of the AT Museum is 1120 Pine Grove Road, Gardners, PA 17324, but this locates wrong on Google Maps.

    Info from the museum website that may help:

    To See a detailed map of Pine Grove Furnace State Park, the Appalachian Trail in the park, and the area around the Museum site, click here to see a map as a PDF file

    Latitude, Longitude:

    40.032988, -77.304626

    N40 1.9793', W077 18.2776'


    Some Mapping Programs place this address too far to the north. The intersection of Rt 233 and Pine Grove Rd has the Park Office on the East side. The Appalachian Trail Museum is a few hundred feet south of there along with parking and the Pine Grove Furnace.

    You guys are great. I was going to do a review of all this on Monday and you've all beat me to the punch. I'm grateful! I am at the stage of "I hope I remember everything". I think this is going to be a terrific event.

    2Q, good or bad, you get the "blame" either way! You've done a great job with this and we all know what that means. Great job = lots of work ! Thanks again!
