GET WET!! Lower Shamokin Falls (Nelson County) 4.5 mile easy BUT...
Easy 4.5 mile ( total ) hike BUT...a rocky climb near the end. To get to the swimming hole, you have to be able to scale up and down an 8-10 ft high boulder. 3 creek crossings on the way.
Optional additional swimming hole and slide hike afterwards. .6 mile each way.
Carpool from Wegmans, parking aisle #6, and meet me at Valley Green Shopping Center in Nellysford (on Rt 151 near Devils Backbone, Bold Rock etc).
