PA Game Commission Parking Lot off Pine Swamp Rd. We meetup in the PA Game Commission Parking Lot (0.5 mile south from Eckville on the right side of Pine Swamp Rd). The lot is only 0.2 mi from the A.T. and can accommodate 15-20 cars. GPS Coordinates: 40.625516,-75.953465 Physical Address: (none) Driving Directions: Take I-78 E or W to Exit 35, then PA 143N 3.0 mi. Turn Left at a gas station onto a paved, unnumbered road that quickly becomes Hawk Mountain Rd. (Route 2012) to Eckville. Turn Right in Eckville onto Pine Swamp Rd and continue 0.5 south to the PA Game Commission parking lot that will be on the Right side of the unpaved road. We meet in the parking lot. Public Transportation: There is no public transportation to this area. NOTE: Please remember to take the leader(s) number(s) with you but please respect the fact that we are all volunteers and there is often no cell coverage at trailheads and varies according to service provider. If you call very close to hike time, please understand that we are very busy with pre-hike preparations for ourselves in addition to group sign in, pre-hike briefing, and then leading the hike. It is also very difficult to provide instructions to someone while following them too, hence providing very detailed directions on this separate page. Leaders are advised to not answer phones once a hike is started so we don't miss a turn on the trail due to the distraction of a call. Thank you for your understanding and see you there!
