(DATE UPDATED) AT Section Hike: Eckville to Fort Franklin Road
This is a challenging hike which will include a 1000ft+ ascent and some very rocky terrain, and will feature stops at Dan's Pulpit, Balanced Rock, Tri-County Corner & Allentown Shelter. Hopefully, we will catch the Mountain Laurel in bloom!
Definitely not for beginners! If you have the stamina for a steep ascent, are a skilled rock hopper, and a fan of great vistas, you should enjoy this hike. 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. We'll be doing some shuttling, so I'll be looking for volunteer drivers. Wear sturdy boots and bring at least 2 liters of water, lunch and snacks. No dogs. Rain cancels.
