    Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon anyone?

    I was thinking of doing this 30 mile hike over the Columbus Day Weekend. Hopefully, the foliage will start changing by then. This can be done over 3 days and 2 nights or stretched an extra day for a more leisurely pace.

    Here are a few links:

    Google map of the area

    Pennsylvania's DCNR

    Wikipedia's page

    Pine Creek Outfitters page

    Trip Report

    Backpacker magazine's details

    Plus there a a bunch of videos on YouTube.

    That looks pretty sweet. I'm gonna check my schedule to see if it's doable. I kinda like the three-days, two-nights schedule.

    Never hiked it but was in there during the early RVing days. Awesome country!

    What VA hang? I can say that Perrito is fine hiking company, and this sounds like a truly beautiful hike. I'm hoping to make it.
