The Black Forest Trail (BFT)—with its sharp elevation gain, convoluted route, and wild succession of ups and downs—demands a great deal from those seeking to walk it, but it gives a great deal too. No other single trail captures so much of the essence of Pennsylvania’s great hiking—the varied terrain; the vistas of gorges carved deep into the plateau; the close, steep hollows; the quaint villages. This is the one Pennsylvania loop that every backpacker in the region must hike, but come prepared: it’s no mere walk in the woods.
