Hiking: AT – Peter’s Mountain Road to Clarks Ferry Shelter


On Black Friday, I decided to go finish off a little section of the AT that I skipped over on my earlier hikes. I needed to do the section between the Susquehanna River and Peter’s Mountain Road.

For some damn fool reason, I thought that it was 4 miles, so I was just going to do an out-and-back of 8 miles.

After walking a little over 4 miles, I saw a sign that I still had another 3 miles to go to get to the river. I really didn’t want to try a 14 mile dayhike, especially since I had another hike planned for the next day, so I stopped off at the Clarks Ferry Shelter for lunch, and turned back.

I have 143.4 miles of the AT left to hike in Pennsylvania- give or take 🙂
