Auburn Lookout Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There is a steep climb of almost 1,000 feet at the beginning of this hike, but once you gain that elevation, the walking is easy (if you don’t mind thousands of rocks underfoot) along the nearly level crest of Blue Mountain. Two viewpoints, one from a pipeline rightof-way and the other from a rock outcrop, are the destinations for the day’s hike.

Follow the A.T. south as it makes use of a railroad bridge to cross the Schuylkill River. Turn left across railroad tracks still actively used by the Blue Mountain and Reading Railroad. A few feet later climb a steep embankment to an old railbed. Turn left and follow it for close to 50 yards before turning right and ascending steeply via switchbacks."
