Let’s go for a hike! This MODERATE hike will be about 6.5 miles long, out and back style. It will begin on the Appalachian Trail, initially passing through several flat farm fields and then up into the woods with about 650 feet of elevation gain. We will then turn onto the White Rocks trail which involves going through interesting large rock formations and optional rock scrambling on top of the ridge.
Carpoolers: Meet at City Island in front of the parking garage at 9:30 am. We will leave at 9:45 sharp. If not carpooling- Hike location: Meet in front of the Boiling Springs Iron Furnace located at 109 Bucher Hill Rd. Boiling Springs, PA 17007 at 10:15. You can park in the long parking lot at the southeast end of Children’s Lake. If that is full there are other parking options such as the Children’s Lake parking lot or in the unmarked lot next to the railroad tracks off Mountain Rd (next to Yellow Breeches Creek).
