Hey guys! Quick question for you.
My friend and I are trying to find a spot near Philadelphia (within 2 hours) where we can hike in, set up a shelter in the middle of nowhere and be able to come back to it. We did the AT last month but didn’t set up anything permanent as we read about some restrictions. This past weekend we were hoping to do it in the wharton state park but again, restrictions.
Where can we go that we won’t get a fine...
