Overview

Join us for a fall foliage backpacking adventure along the PA Appalachian Trail from Wind Gap, PA to the Delaware Water Gap. We will begin by meeting at the ending point at Delaware Water Gap (40.979885, -75.141701) and shuttle out to our starting point to begin. We will start on a route which has a little elevation then starts to flatten out. The adventure will continue along the AT walking along the ridge line for a total of 9 miles until we reach the shelter where we will set up for the night and relax. Our camping options besides the shelter include a nearby field that has an overlooking vista. On the second day we will hike the remaining 6 miles while stopping to enjoy the spectacular view points overlooking the Delaware Water Gap. Finally we will end our adventure at our cars parked at Delaware Water Gap. The total amount of miles is at about 15 miles. After shuttling back to our cars, we may have an optional get together for a group lunch. This is a colead for Raun to become a backpacking leader, so be sure to be prepared with a fun and adventurous attitude. We want to make this memorable for him!! Registration is required. If you are interested in being a part of this adventure, please contact Raun to discuss your experience level and the gear that is needed.
