Most people, including myself, who have hiked or attempted to hike this trail entirely in one weekend will tell you that this must be the hardest backpacking trail in Pennsylvania! In 2004, Straw took me on a two day 42 mile adventure on the BFT. It was my first back to back 20 mile day experience. I remember being completely exhausted and dehydrated while stumbling towards the car at the completion of this loop. We drove back home just in time to shower and get to work. While the BFT had absolutely kicked my ass, it was such a great experience that we went out and hiked another trail the following weekend!
