Enjoy over 500 miles of gorgeous hiking trails, including 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Stumble upon a ridge crest, panoramic views, waterfalls and canyons. Spot deer, black bears, and wild turkeys. When in season admire the abundant wildflowers and apple trees. Stop to learn about its history from one of the many stone foundations, and cemeteries.
