This hike begins in the village of Port Clinton and follows the old towpath along the Schuylkill River. It is mostly woodland trail walking with some hills and road walking. There is also a cemetery [be careful to walk between graves, not over them] with some very old tombstones that we can explore on our descent back to the village. We hope to see remnants of an old canal lock, if possible. We will be adjacent to gamelands, so wearing orange may be a good idea. Wear good boots and carry water as well.
