Description: 

Another summer tradition! An approximate 10½ kilometer (6½ mile) circuit hike starting at the General store at Pine Grove Furnace State Park. We will hike the AT, past Fuller Lake along the AT/bike trail and then veer uphill on the AT to the Pole Steeple Trail to the Pole Steeple Cliffs overlooking Laurel lake; then return to the starting point via the Mountain Creek Trail. After the hike enjoy a refreshing, cool dip in Laurel Lake; therefore, do not forget swim attire, towel, and beach chair.

There should be some time before the hike to visit the Appalachian Trail museum near the General Store before or after the hike; museum hours during the summer are 10 am to 4 pm.

Meet 9 am at Prospect Plaza shopping plaza, near the Lube Center for carpooling, or meet 10:30 am at the General Store at Pine Grove Furnace State Park.
