Unfortunately, no, not much advice at all. Haven't done any of those segment. The most hiking I've done around here is over at Hawk Mtn, where the AT passes nearby. I've done some other tooling around off the AT in Berks County but that's been searches for the ruins of old forts from the French & Indian War, and like I said, its all been off trail. I don't know what people will tell you about ticks, but I've only had 3 on me ever and found them all before they could attach. I don't think they are a big deal, but others will differ. I figure if I have time to hike extended, I ain't doin it here, I head north, home to NH. However, if you need a re-supply and will be passing through Berks on the AT, let us know.
