We're leaving tomorrow to hike the PA trail but we still haven't figured out exactly how to get to the Appalachian trail at the Maryland/PA border.
If anyone knows an address or a road we can follow into it would be greatly appreciated.

Pen/Mar park. You can search on it at maps.google.com (http://maps.google.com/). Or search for "Blue Ridge Summit."

Travis49, would I be correct in thinking you do not have KTA's guide book? We can fix you up with some information you can download tonight before you depart.

Sorry for the delay. We're experiencing intermittent electrical storms in The Green Diamond and I lost my connection.

If you do not have a guide book, go here (http://www.aldha.org/comp_pdf.htm), download the file for PA and print it out. You might also want to gather information about water sources ahead of you from hikers headed in the opposite direction of your own travel.

Happy hiking!

Hope this isn't too late for you. You'll find most access points to the AT on this website: http://appalachiantrail.rohland.org (http://appalachiantrail.rohland.org/).
