Table Rock and Peters Mountain

Table Rock and Peters Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This hike heads east out of the parking area along the Appalachian Trail (AT), along the Peters Mountain ridge to Table Rock, a wonderful sunny overlook. From there, you can follow the AT to the Peters Mountain Shelter, and from there to the Victoria Trail near the boundary of the Joseph E. Ibberson Conservation Area.

The first section of this hike, to Table Rock and back, is deservedly popular. The walking is easy, the distance is not too long, and the view from the rock is spectacular. Beyond Table Rock, the trail can still be busy, as a trip to the Peters Mountain Shelter and back makes for an easy overnight excursion. Beyond the shelter, you’ll see fewer people, mostly folks exploring the AT."

This hike has some beautiful views of the Susquehanna River. It's an easy hike to do in the summer and even better in the fall during the changing tree colors. There's a bit of rock scrambling and some ridge hiking but nothing too hard for a beginner to do.
