Hike 01: Glenn Onoku Falls & Broad Mtn

Hike number one of my 52 hike challenge was a beautiful five plus mile jaunt through Lehigh Gorge State Park on Black Friday. I was excited to start the challenge with a hike I’ve never done, in an area I’ve never been before.

Overall, this was an amazing hike. There were some tough sections, and a staircase decent that I felt in my knees for a few days, but the waterfalls and views of the gorge were absolutely worth it!
