    Default PA late Oct?

    Is late Oct still a good time to do the N half of Pa?

    It is past the peak leaf change time. There will be a bunch of leaves on the ground and can be slick if it rains. You will have more views through the trees. It won't be hot. There is always an odd chance of snow but not typically. There will not be crowds. Anytime on the trail is better than on the couch. Have fun!

    Late October through November is a great time for Pennsylvania backpacking. Good views, comfortably chilly at night and not too hot during the day.

    And if you are lucky,, the leaves will be at their peak color at that time too.
    Have fun.
    Great time to be out there.
    Maybe I'll see you

    Just remember it's also hunting season for various species. Wear something blaze orange. Be safe, be seen.

    october is the best month for hiking anywhere in the northern hemisphere
    The only thing better than mountains, is mountains where you haven't been.
