Hikes in NE US - with beer.
May 18, 2014 6:05 PM Subscribe
Hikers of Metafilter, help me out! I would like to find a day hike somewhere in the northeast US (within a few hours of SE Pennsylvania), with a pretty specific requirement of 'a decent place to eat and have a beer halfway through the day.' Does this place exist?

I feel like this must exist - a good (for fairly obvious reasons, not TOO strenuous) hike where you can start out in the morning, make some good progress, and find a pub-type place for lunch when you're a few hours in. (And yes, I realize the answer to this question is 'England,' but I'm in Philadelphia, so we're working with what we've got.)
I felt like I'd heard rumors about the Billy Goat Trail in Maryland, but searching is not coming up with anything obvious. Anyone know of anything that fits the bill? Anywhere in general mid-Atlantic region would be ideal, but I certainly wouldn't sneer at the knowledge of somewhere further afield, either!
