East End A.T.

Page Type: Route
Lat/Lon: 40.38820°N / 77.0047°W
Route Type: Hike (Class 1)
Time Required: Half a day
Difficulty: Walk-up


Follow the directions in getting to route 22/322 west. Instead of the Clarks Ferry Approach, get off onto route 225 which is the first Halifax exit when you are heading north along the river from I-81. This road goes over the mountain and once on top gives places to park for A.T. access.

Route Description

This route is just a different approach to head south on the A.T. from route 225. You'll be at the top of the mountain and have a nice ridgewalk to Clarks Ferry of about 7 miles. The views are just as nice as the other approach and this provides you with a little bit longer of a hike in distance, but it will take you just a little longer than the other route due to less elevation gain. Nice views of the river and the surrounding valleys all the way to Harrisburg exist on even an overcast day.

Essential Gear

Day pack and comfortable shoes.
