My favorite hike in the Michaux State Forest area, this hike follows the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) from Pine Grove Furnace State Park for roughly 4 miles to the Toms Run Shelter where it picks up the Sunset Rocks Trail. The 0.5-mile hike through and over and around the rocks along the ridge is great fun, and the overlook at the end can’t be beat for the view and for the big, ? at sitting rock (a nice place for an afternoon siesta).
