The Mid State Trail runs through my backyard. Within a miles of my house I can jump on the MST and hike in either direction. North towards Williamsburg or south through my favorite section, Maple Run.
The Mid State Trail (MST) is a 522.98 km-long (324.96 mi) main trail network with many side trails located in the Ridge-and-valley Appalachians andAllegheny Plateau of Central Pennsylvania. It is known as “The Wildest Trail in Pennsylvania”. In 2006, the MST was announced as part of the Great Eastern Trail network of footpaths intended to extend from Alabama to New York State.
Shawn Manogue has been documenting his section hike of the Mid State Trail (MST). You can watch all his video on his Youtube channel Trail Bound.
Shawn Manogue, Pennsylvania – Nature and the outdoors saved Shawn (Trailbound) Manogue from a low point in his life. Turning 40 was a pivotal experience and determined to make it a positive one, Shawn turned to social media to share his outdoor and life journey. His videos are made both to inspire others to share the outdoors, and to share the outdoors with those with mobility issues who can’t. Shawn is currently section hiking the Mid State Trail, and planning his supreme goal of thru-hiking the AT. He lives in PA with his outdoor and life partner Emily (Turbo T). “Life is an adventure I can’t choose the best so far, but I hope I can remember the best of my life when I’m at the end of it.” – Trail Bound YouTube – Twitter
