This will be the first leg of a grander plan to cover all the off-road sections of the NCT in Pennsylvania. I'm calling it the "Tour d'NCT/PA".

It would be a monthly outing.

It would work its way alternately from Ohio and from New York until the last section hiked is in the middle. This provides some variety in distance to the trail head and in type of terrain.

For day hikes, we would do around 7 to 12 miles a day.

There could be a possible back packing or car camping leg on occasion.

We could have a map marked off with sections and a log book, so that those who complete all the sections get a patch or some thing of recognition.
