It’s back to Pennsylvania’s Michaux State Forest today for more Appalachian Trail madness. We pick up the trail at Pine Grove Furnace and follow it south, but soon depart it for a delightful side trip – a two-mile detour along the boulder-strewn crest of Little Rock Ridge with a stunning view from Sunset Rocks. After rejoining the AT, we’ll continue southbound, with moderate hikers ending at Shippensburg Rd., long hikers adding a round trip to Birch Run Shelter.
