Pennsylvania usually isn't at the top of anyone's list of destinations but it does offer a lot of backpacking. One of the most popular is the 59 Mile Loyalsock Trail in the Endless Mountains Region. I grew up in PA and planned to hike it 20 years ago. After leaving the state I never got back to backpack until a few weeks ago when I combined it with a trip visiting family. For the thorough TR and A LOT of photos click the link below to my website. https://tomcatoutdoors.blogspot.com/2019/08/backpacking-loyalsock-trail.html

Here are a few photos. The rest are at the link above.

The mountains of my childhood. My first solo backpacks were the Gifford Pinchot Trail (Poconos) and Black Forest Trail (The Northern Tier).

I spent a summer living near Williamsport when I was younger. Didn't get to do any backpacking, but I tried to get out as much as possible for day hikes and fishing. I really loved that area. Thanks for taking me back!
