AT Lehigh Gap – Choose Your Own Adventure Hike – 11, or 13, or 22 miles
We’re organizing a hike on the AT on the section that goes from Bake Oven Knob through the Lehigh Gap all the way to Little Gap. But with this hike, people are able to choose how far they would like to hike. Option A is 11 miles, Option B is 13 miles, and Option C is 22 miles.
We’re going to keep all three groups together, so you must be able to maintain a strong 3 mph average pace
This section of the AT is a must for any hiker! In a very short section, there are inspiring views of the multiple valleys & several spots where you walk along ridgelines with commanding views of the area. There are boulder fields, followed by sections where you are hiking in pine trees, then in fields of dense ferns, then in tall grass with little to no trees. There are spots where you find yourself climbing hand over hand up a very steep incline that is full of rocks. Hope to see you on the hike!!
