Pennsylvania: West Rim Trail Traverse

May 24, 2014

Join Trail Ambassador Dan Bortz for a Traverse of the West Rim of the Pine Creek Gorge (AKA The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania) a 30-mile (+5650′ of elevation) hiking trail with several beautiful vistas. Most hikers will do this as a 2-4 day backpacking trip, but we’ll be attempting it as a day hike. This hike is not open to beginners, and anyone RSVPing should have a few 20+ mile days under their belt. We will meet at the WRT’s Northern Terminus near Wellsboro, PA at 7:30AM and shuttle ourselves to the Southern Terminus. This event is being hosted by Berks-Lehigh Hiking and Backpacking Meetup, but non-members are welcome to RSVP via email ( Since the group size is limited, Berks-Lehigh Members will be given preference over non-members. Limit 10 hikers.
