    Pa AT section hike Eckville to Palmerton 3/24-25

    I thought about trying to get out for a section hike and hang at the New Tripoli campsite Saturday night 3/24. I just wanted to see if anybody else was interested in going along. With all the rocks and the Knifes Edge in this section Iím only planning on heading out if the weather is good.

    I just worked out a shuttle for the trip. I will start at Palmerton by 8:00 am on 3/24. With the ďKnifes EdgeĒ in this section I only plan on going if I have good weather as far as precipitation goes (no rain, ice, or snow). If anybody is interested in going along I should be able to shuttle them back to Palmerton on Sunday afternoon to pick up their car.

    I have not done that section yet, but unfortunately i already have plans that weekend and the next.

    I'm going to look over my maps and check what I have going on that weekend!

    Edit: Checked the maps. This is going to be out of my neighborhood.

    If you need a ride up I will be traveling thru Harrisburg around 6-6:30am on 3/24. I would be glad to meet up with you some place like Bass Pro and give you a ride up and then back on 3/25. If you’re interested send me a PM and we can work out the details.

    Here is my itinerary. The total millage for the trip is 26.3 miles. I will be hiking SOBO leaving Palmerton around 8:30am and camping at the New Tripoli campsite. I should make it into camp with at least 2 hours of daylight to setup. The campsite is 12.1 miles SOBO of the parking lot in Palmerton. Then on Sunday it will be 14.2 miles to the State Game lands parking lot just south of Hawk Mountain rd in Eckville. Hope to be off the trail by 4:30 Sunday afternoon.

    With the combination of bad weather and the fact that I found out Iím double booked I will not be taking the hike this weekend. Yooz85 and I have talked about trying to hike these sections this summer. If we come up with a plan I will post it later.
    Thanks,
    Gris
