CANCELLED - APPALACHIAN TRAIL LOOP HIKE AT LITTLE GAP, 18071

  • 29 Jun 2019
  • 9:00 AM
  • Plymouth Meeting Mall

This hike is cancelled due to inclement weather.


10 miles.  From Little Gap, hike a 10 mile loop that follows the "new" AT along a rolling, grassy trail just a hundred feet or so below the ridgeline. This reroute was put in while the "old" AT was undergoing EPA superfund remediation. The old AT became an access road, which now serves as a nice return loop on the mountain. This is one of the few sections of AT to have views, with Palmerton below.  Possible berry picking, too.   Meet in parking lot at north end of Plymouth Meeting Mall off Germantown Ave, near SEPTA Transportation Center at 9:00 AM.  If carpooling up the Turnpike to Little Gap (68 miles to trailhead) please share tolls, $10 per car round trip.  Hiking boots recommended.  Bring lunch and water.  Cost $1.00. Please call leader to confirm participation on this hike. Leader: Gary Sawyer, 610-891-0118, muddyboots@comcast.net.
