Appalachian Trail from Deckertown Turnpike (High Point State Park) to Sunrise Mountain (Stokes State Forest) - 09/04/2010

This is a very easy way to hike to Sunrise Mountain for about 7 miles total out and back. The parking lot off of Deckertown Turnpike holds about 8 cars but does not seem to be heavily used. The parking lot is already at a high elevation so other than some minor ups and downs along the way, the trail is pretty level along a ridge. Some limited views to the west and north early on, probably better views when the leaves are down. I tried to incorporate the Lusscroft Farm trails into the hike but between the trails being overgrown and running into a bear that ran off in the direction I was heading, I decided it was best to abort that plan.
