APPALACHIAN TRAIL MAP PENNSYLVANIA

230 miles in Pennsylvania (2,100 total). This important National Scenic Trail enters Pennsylvania from Maryland, crosses the southeastern part of the state, and exits into New Jersey. It passes through state forest, state park, and state game lands.

The trail follows low mountain ridges, offering nice views and scenery along the way. Elevations rarely exceed 2,000 feet, and are generally under 1,600 feet. Difficulty is mostly easy to moderate, but the footing is often extremely rocky.

Camping Regulations: A number of shelters and established campsites are located along the trail. Campfires are allowed at these sites but discouraged. A stove is recommended for cooking.

When the trail is on state forest lands, camping is allowed almost anywhere, but campsites should be at least 100 feet from the trail, 200 feet from roads, and well away from water sources. Camping in state parks is limited to designated sites.

On state game lands camping is allowed only within 200 feet of the Appalachian Trail. Campsites must also be at least 500 feet from water sources. Campfires are not allowed on game lands, and the maximum stay per site is one night.
