    Pa. Allegheny front trail in July

    Just a heads up! I am considering about 3-4 days and hiking the 40 mile loop at the Allegheny Front trail near Black Moshannon State Park. It looks like it will have to be in July, 2012. I will know a better date as soon as I get my July work schedule sometime in mid-June.
    Anyone else considering an interesting challenge in July?
    Here is a Hammock Forums previous report by Griss from June of 2011

    I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers, but time is still turning they soon will be dry;
    All those who see me, and all who believe in me, share in the freedom I feel when I fly.Ē

    I'm interested! I'll have to see what the exact dates you are looking at. I have a few July commitments but I'll be listening for the details on this one!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Only way I could do this is if the dates were the 1st-4th of July! Will keep watch for the dates you choose.

    It would be more than great you hike with you CB. I'm open for any date. I'll monitor the thread as well.

    Put me down for a tentative "In" for this. I'll be waiting on my work schedule too. Soon as I know the dates I can try and ask for the time. Boss usually does the schedule the last week of the month.

    Wish I could go but time for hiking this year is hard to find. I used a couple of different websites to plan my trips to the AFT. I found all of them to be helpful in one way or another. The AFT isnít an incredibly difficult trail but I really enjoyed the fact that it traverses several different landscapes. Deep forest, rocky slopes with views, marsh lands, beautiful trout streams, and so on. I look forward to hearing what you all think of it.
    Peace,
