News Year's Eve Hike to the Allentown Shelter (8 miles)
End the year with a hike on the Appalachian Trail
PLEASE WEAR BLAZE ORANGE AS WE WILL BE ON STATE GAME LANDS AND SHARING THAT SPACE WITH HUNTERS. ALSO, COVID PROTOCOL CALLS FOR FACE COVERINGS WHEN UNABLE TO MAINTAIN A 6-FOOT SOCIAL DISTANCE. We will meet at Rt. 309 for a 4 mile hike to the Allentown Shelter. At the shelter we will eat lunch, however due to current COVID protocols we will not be sharing food as in previous years. After a suitable time for socializing, we will hike 4 miles back to our cars. Anyone who would like a shorter 2 mile hike to the Shelter may join us at Fort Franklin Road. Bring lunch and water. Since we will be spending time at the shelter, bring an extra layer of clothing to stay warm. No dogs or alcoholic beverages. Steady rain or snow on morning of hike cancels this event.

Hike rating: B
Meeting place: Meet on Rt. 309 by the tower at the south end of the Thunderhead Lodge Restaurant parking lot, 2520 West Penn Pike, Andreas, PA 18211
