Mid-Atlantic fall hikes [Pictures]
The simple act of going for a walk becomes an adventure when the weather turns crisp and Mid-Atlantic trees change color. Check out these area hiking trails to get a breath of fresh air, to commune with nature and to get a glimpse of our region's rich history. See the untamed wilds of West Virginia. Walk into the past to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. Watch birds of prey soaring over the mountains of Pennsylvania. Just get outside and go.
