Hiked into Palmerton, PA today. It was about 20 miles.
It was a rocky trail day, with some longer sections of boulder climbing. The Knifes Edge was the biggest. Every step and handhold I was looking for snakes. No snakes found. In bad weather, I would not advise hiking this section, you may fall off. Pictures do not do justice the the length or steepness of this feature.
I ran into a hiker who had hiked through the area and said he was standing on rocks and looked down and saw a Copperhead snake between his legs that tried to strike him but it just missed.
While hiking, a turkey was waiting in the tall grass and ferns for me. When I got within 10 feet, it ran out making tons of noise and flapping it wings. I planted my front foot down hard to stop myself. I admit I was suprised by it. Haha.
There were some parts of the trail that were not that rocky.
