This Saturday’s Hike – Bohen Run Falls
8 miles, rated easy, though not without a climb. There is a stretch of rail-trail walking that can be a bit boring and hot, but the woods portion should be nice. I haven’t done this one in a looooooooong time, so details are a bit fuzzy. It combines parts of the Mid-State Trail and the West Rim Trail, as well as the aforementioned Pine Creek Rail Trail. It’s about a 2 hour drive to get up there. I generally leave very early to accomodate the drive, hiking time, and return drive. Time of departure is somewhat negotiable, though.
If you’re interested in coming, or might be but need more information, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*There’s always a chance that my plans could change and I cancel the hike, but it’s looking good as of now.
Also, I’ll repost these but there are two hikes I’m thinking about that I would really love to have some company for – one I can’t do solo, since it’s a point-to-point (as opposed to a loop) and would involve some shuttling:
1. West Rim Trail – about a 13 mile point-to-point from Bradley Wales Picnic Area to spot close to Colton Point State Park. This is a beautiful trail with breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon of PA. If there’s enough interest, it might be fun (and it would be easier) to camp out at Colton Point on a Friday night and hike on Saturday. Camping an additional night or heading home would be at your discretion. This is a really long drive (near Wellsboro) so if we don’t camp, it’ll be a long day. But well worth it!
2. Old Logger’s Path. This is part of a long backpack trail, but about half of it (14 miles??) can be done as a day hike. It’s another I haven’t done for a long time so, again, details are fuzzy. I do remember one really incredible view, though. This one is quite a drive, too. It’s northeast of Williamsport and I’d guess maybe 2.5 hours one way? I could do this one alone, since it’s a loop but I’d love to have someone to talk to besides myself. And yes, I do have long and philosophical conversations with me when I hike. Jokes are a bit of a challenge, though, since I already know the punchlines.
If either or both of these sound good to you, we can be a little less spontaneous in the planning of them. Just let me know.
