Overview


Pennsylvania's 3,000-plus miles of hiking trails lead you up, over, across, and down six distinct mountain ranges, offering up some of the most dramatic gorges, waterfalls, vistas, and rock outcrops in the East. From the shores of Lake Erie to the famed City of Brotherly Love, encounter glorious battlefields, historic canals, reminders of the state's mining past, and countless unmarked treasures.

The trails of Hike Pennsylvania run the gamut, from treks along 300-million-year-old quartzite cliffs to strolls through sand dunes to tiring grunts up desolate mountain peaks - giving you a unique look into the history and culture and incomparable beauty of the Keystone State.

This guide includes: comprehensive trail descriptions, from beginner to advanced; GPS-quality, digitally designed relief maps detailing each hike; accurate route profiles showing the ups and downs of each hike; detailed mile-by-mile directional cues, difficulty ratings, elevation gain, trail contacts, local information; advice on the equipment you'll need, plus tips on trip planning, hiking with dogs, and hiking with children. (5 1/2 X 8 1/2, 384 pages, b&w photos, maps, graphs)
