6 Instagrams Will Inspire You To Hike Pennsylvania ASAP
Pennsylvania Beyond Philly & Pittsburgh
What do you think of when you picture visiting Pennsylvania? Maybe a football game in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh or eating a delicious Philly cheesesteak sandwich? Pennsylvania is probably not on the top of your vacation destination list at all unless you have family in the area. When you think of beautiful places to hike, Pennsylvania is often overlooked.
I am part of #ICE2017, an initiative to spread the word about Pennsylvania’s beauty (especially Western PA) outdoors. Besides the Poconos, there are great areas to hike and explore all over the state; AllTrails lists over 1,000 trails within the state of Pennsylvania. There will be more to come in relation to PA and other nearby east coast trails as I connect more with the ICE2017 group but I want to share a few photos that might make you think twice about dismissing Pennsylvania as an outdoor adventure destination!
6 Instagrams Inspring You to Hike Pennsylvania

If you love winter sports, this is a great account to follow because he’s an avid snowboarder (love THIS pic). Although many photos are from winter, there are a lot of beautiful photos of the Pennsylvania landscape (and quite a few of his adorable husky).

This local Pennsylvania hiker loves taking photos of waterfalls (from all over, not just PA). Along with amazing exposures of various falls, Mike “loyalsocks” really captures the beauty of Pennsylvania with landscape photos including colorful sunsets. He does a lot of long exposure photography, and if you’re not familiar with this style you’ll soon understand as you look through his photos!
