Saturday              November 5, 2016          AT Penn—Lehigh Gap to Little Gap                        Strenuous

A long drive, but the views are worth it! First a Strenuous scramble at beginning of hike! Then look down on our starting point on the Lehigh River as the AT climbs to the top of the ridge. Find out what happened to all the trees (except the Sassafras trees). Look down at Palmerton, what was its history? Once on the ridge the climbing has ended and it’s on to Little Gap for a total of about 7 miles. Shuttle Required
