Overview

Come and join us on a beautiful, secluded and challenging section of the Chuck Keiper Trail in North Central, PA. We will be starting close to Boggs Run and will be ascending and descending in and out of hollows and gorges to end our first day at camp in deep hemlock forests within the gorge after roughly 7-8 miles. On Saturday we will hike up and down some steep descents and the notable vistas at Fish Dam Wild Area and Burns Run Wild Area to end our day after roughly 11 miles at camp. Sunday we will hike out through gorges and waterfalls along the incredible Yost Run to end our trip. Stinging nettles are plentiful along this trail so please have something that can cover your legs. Registration is required.
