Hitting the High Notes Professional Review and Guide

"This northbound section-hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT) will treat you to a jewel of a backpacking trip with one big vista after another. From glacial lakes like Sunfish Pond and Crater Lake to the big views from Rattlesnake and Sunrise mountains, you’ll find yourself continually surprised and delighted by the beauty of the walk.

And when you reach the monument to U.S. war dead standing atop High Point, with expansive views of Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, you’ll feel that you’ve completed a kind
of pilgrimage. Few backcountry trips can boast of so dramatic a finish."
