Overview

Join us in the third part lightning fast speed hike variation across the Peavine Trail and Conestoga Trail. This time we will reverse the first hike starting from the Lock 12 parking area and and end the hike at Pequea Boat Launch. With little tree cover along the trail, the visibility of the Susquehanna River is best this time of year. Don't be fooled. We won't lose ourselves in the rivers majestic wonder unless we are doing it in steady motion. The route also includes a short loop out on Peavine Isle. This Island is only a hop away from the shore and has a very interesting landscape. The hike includes around a 2900+ total elevation gain/loss, many stream crossings with your shoes/boots on. We will eat and drink while in motion. Previous strenuous long distance hiking experience will be needed, since we are going to be moving at a lightning fast rate with high elevation gain/loss and over 13 miles. I suggest you bring water (with electrolytes), snacks and wear good hiking shoes/boots (waterproof is best), hiking poles and correct clothes for the temperature. We will meet at 8 AM at Pequea Boat Launch (GPS:39.8884264,-76.3664389). Severe weather will cancel. Please contact me if you have any questions.
