Parking: High Rock Loop Trail (start), Rattlesnake Run Road (end)

This hike requires two cars. Leave one at Rattlesnake Run Road (more northern intersection in Pennsylvania), and start the hike at High Rock Loop Trail. Hike northbound.

We finished the Maryland section of the AT today! We only had 3 miles left to do in Maryland, so we continued on to hike half of section 14 in Pennsylvania. We had another rocky section today - and I thought all of Maryland was supposed to be easy! We crossed the Mason Dixon line. I have lived in Maryland, but I never thought of myself as living in the south. The number of confederate flags we have seen this week has been disconcerting.

Ugh - another really rocky section. Where is my bubble wrap?
