We were supposed to head up to New England but oh well, PA it is. Does anyone know of a backpackers site in the long flat stretch between Alex Kennedy shelter and Darlington shelter? I've been trying to research here but no luck and this is a last minute change in plans and we hope to leave tomorrow morning. Thanks for any help.

There is no camping thru there. Your best bet would be pitching tents at the ATC barn/ farm house that is about halfway thru...Will edit with more details in a moment


The Scott farm - MM 1057.9 in Guthooks. There is tap water and right next to the Conodoguinet creek.

Options are few. You could get off at RT. 11 in Carlisle and take a short walk to a motel. Iceman

It's a long walk, but an easy one to cross the valley in one go. Just get a really early start as there isn't much shade for much of it.

There is a tenting area just before Boiling Springs, but it's right next to the RR tracks and the freight trains will keep you up all night. The only other option is a motel room at RT11. (go west, (left) to find the motels)

Thank you to all for your responses. We probably will opt for pushing through that section and be done with it.

It is super cruisy. If it's a hot day get going early.
