HIGHLIGHTS: This short 2.2 mile section of The Appalachian Trail descends from High Rocks to Pen Mar State Park, only a short distance from the Maryland and Pennsylvania Border. High Rocks has outstanding views to the west, and I caught an excellent sunset from this overlook in 1994. In 1996, I day-hiked this section while on a business trip, and combined a 1.7 mile road route with a 2.2 mile section of the Appalachian Trail. The loop hike took about an hour and a half.
