Lehigh Furnace Gap Boulder Field and AT Hike
This is a somewhat challenging hike along the Appalachian ridge which will include 1.1 miles on an exposed unstable boulder field and a stop at Outerbridge Shelter. Not for beginners! Many great views north and south!
Leaving from and returning to Lehigh Furnace Gap on the AT, this “loop” hike will include portions of the AT as well as the north and south trails on either side of it. If your main purpose is to go fast and get exercise, please consider another hike. We will be moving at a good clip, but stopping to enjoy the vistas and sightings along the way. Numerous views both north and south of the Northeast Extension and Lehigh River. Wear sturdy hiking boots and bring at least 2 liters of water, lunch and snacks. Rain cancels.
Round trip road miles distance: 21 miles
