    My state and area is overrated for difficulty. The rocks are on and off. Most of it is ridge walking. I guess Wind Gap to Fox Gap is around the worst. Knife's Edge north of 309 is a boulder...

    I think I did Pen Mar to Rocky Mountain Shelters in the fall day 1. I started at like 12 or 1 that day too. I got to PA 641 (Trindle Road) around to 2 PM day 4. I also stopped way early around 1...

    Make sure you are aware that the only camping allowed between Alec Kennedy and Darlington Shelters is at Boiling Springs near the railroad tracks. I think the rocks are overrated. They get crazy...

    You can probably loop around SGL, but make sure you know the rules. You can only camp near the AT or at the shelters. Even camping around that shelter is illegal. Can only camp in that shelter...

    Looking at the map, I think 501 you can get to both views SB without too much rocky. NB past the shelter is smoothish if you need distance. Bake Oven Knob, I wouldn't go to the shelter. If he can...

    Pinnacle is $, but I think too far. Bake Oven Knob isn't too hard, but quite rocky. The view is amazing, but too crowded and covered with graffiti. Wolf rocks is very tricky and not really a view....

    As others said, it will be very muddy. Where there isn't lots of mud, probably a lot more rocks than you are used to. It has been a weird weather season. We actually had T-storms here last night. ...

    I have two from Zimmerbuilt that are awesome. I carry all my drinking water in the front and cooking water goes in the side pocket then. So happy I went with that setup.

    I got some water heading NB before getting down to 325? There was a seasonal spring, so I imagine it isn't always flowing. The shelter's water is pretty awesome, as it is a piped trough right there...

    I'm a hammock hanger. I'd say I'm about 50/50. The only time I've actually stayed in shelters itself were recent trips. I actually hung my hammock in a shelter after I was caught in a downpour. ...

    If that's the place I'm thinking of, there's a mailbox trail register and small camping area. Nothing great, but doable I guess. It was a little past a stream going NB. If you don't camp there and...

    Ouch! Where did that happen at and where have you been? It has been cold lately, so lots of stuff froze.

    Cool, safe travels. Trexler is definitely the closest interesting place. It is tough because most of the best local places are on the AT...DWG, Lehigh Gap, Bake Oven Knob and the Pinnacle are the...

    Glen Onoko Falls is pretty popular. A short day hike though, you can extend it through the State Game Lands, but careful as I believe that is the start of deer season. Hickory Run SP has some nice...

    Around Palmerton, a lot of the vegetation was killed off by a zinc plant. They've grown a lot of prairie grass. It makes for interesting landscape. North of Little Gap is really just a single...

    There is a room for a tent or two above the Delps Trail. It is pretty steep and a few hundred feet down to the spring there, if it is flowing. There has been a lot of rain over the last few months,...

    Sorry, no specific idea on the water conditions. However, that area was slammed with rain and flooding throughout August. Not sure what shape the trail is either, but could be messed up in parts...

    I came from a running background to backpacking. I actually did ultras, a bunch of 50ks, a 40 miler and one 50 miler. First trip was the local PA AT. Only hard and slow thing was the rocks. ...

    I really think this is an overhyped state. Maybe it is because I live right here and am used to it. Going down Lehigh Gap should be interesting, Knife Edge is tough, but most of the rest is easy...

    Sounds good in theory, but others already brought up plenty of good points. Imagine this though. Let's say 100 backpackers go through an area a day. Say 5 out of the 100 trash the shelter while...

    Yes, you can hike in them. That's what they are made for. As others said though, they are heavy. They may take some time to break in as well. The sale ends tomorrow night.
