- Black Forest Trail

From September 2003 to September 2005, I was able to section hike the entire Black Forest Trail with a number of fellow hikers. During this time I had stated that the Black Forest Trail was my favorite hiking trail in Pennsylvania. It offered challenging climbs, scenic streams and many breath-taking vistas, all on a well groomed trail. However, the hike in September of 2005 was my last hike on the BFT, which hardly seems appropriate since I referred to this as my favorite Pennsylvania trail. This past weekend I had a chance to right this wrong by heading back to the Black Forest Trail for an overnight backpacking trip. With Mike in tow, we headed up to Naval Run to rehike a section of the BFT that I had previously hiked twice before.
