Hikes in NE US - with beer.

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? [more inside]

Should I still hike in the heat?

It's going to be 98 degrees and humid in the NYC area this Saturday (NPR says it will feel like 104 degrees). I'm supposed to go on an eight-hour hike on Bear Mountain/Stony Point. Is this safe? Advisable? Is there any chance it would still be pleasurable? [more inside]

Extra time at the temple?

We're planning a two week trip to Peru, including a hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Is it worth spending an overnight at Machu Picchu to have extra time onsite? Any other must-see recommendations for Peru would be greatly appreciated.

I shall walk into the wild...

I shall walk into the wild maybe for a week or so, depending on the weather, blisters, etc. Who has recommendations for (relatively safe) *long* solitary walks in the U.S. or Canada? Specifically, I'm looking for a hike/trail/path that I can follow -- walking 7-10 hours a day, for 5-7 days in a row. No cell phone, no computer, no schedule. This would be a sort of annual retreat/walk/vacation/time-to-reset-my-body, that I'd like to do every year. Time to think, lose a few pounds, kick-up my metabolism, detox, chill out, regroup, spiritually recharge, etc. Assuming I don't want to carry a gun into the wild (to protect against critters or humans), where are some interesting, safe destinations??? I'm not a survivalist and I'm not looking for an adventure per se. Prefer a minimum of life-threatening hazards and/or 100+ degree temperatures or freezing nights.
