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]

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.

Where in the NE US can a new backpacker get his backpacking wings?

I have decided to spend my (non-hypothetical) vacation backpacking alone for the week, in the mid-atlantic or northeastern US. However, I am not sure where is best for me to do this, as I have a number of minor concerns and have not done extended backpack travel on a schedule like this -- at least not as a civilian. Specific concerns follow, and overlap somewhat, so apologies for that. [more inside]

Hiking in the Dolomites

I was planning on hiking along the Alta Via 1 trail in the Dolomites within the next few weeks and I was wondering if anyone had experience in this region. Is it safe during springtime without proper hiking/snow equipment? Can the higher mountains with snow be avoided? Thanks for any tips or suggestions!
