A gentle trip suitable for new backpackers, this “lollipop loop” will take you high up the Pennsylvania Blue Ridge, along a memorable lakeshore, and up and over Rocky Knob. It will also give you a taste of the close Pennsylvania hollows, with their thickets of rhododendron and mountain laurel. You’ll end the trip with 9 miles of walking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) southbound into Caledonia State Park.
