DIRECTIONS - From Syracuse, I-81 south to I-380 south in Scranton.  I -380 South to I-80 East.  Exit at PA 33 SOUTH and continue on PA 33 south to the Wind Gap exit.  Turn left and go under the PA 33 bridge.  There is a small AT Parking area on the left soon after going under bridge. The GPS coordinates are N40 51.645 W75 17.554 for those who have a GPS devise in their vehicle.  This is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Syracuse, NY.

THE HIKE - Total round trip mileage is 2.0 miles for this relatively short AT hike to some great views.  From the parking area, cross the BUSY road and turn right, following the road 0.1 mile back under the PA 33 bridge.  Just after the bridge, follow the white blazes up the hill on steps and then on numerous switchbacks.  Reach Lookout Rocks (see panorama above) at 0.75 miles and Hahn's Lookout at 1.0 mile. 

Lookout Rocks is off to your right about 100 feet from the trail (no markings).  Hahn's Lookout is another 0.3 miles along the AT, a few feet on your left from the trail.  No markings, but look for the nice flat "pedestal" rock that you can use to rest and enjoy the view (see picture below).  To return to your vehicle simply retrace your steps back to the parking area.  There is an elevation gain of 442 feet on this moderate hike.  The elevation profile on the map below is for the return trip from Hahn's Lookout.  There is a video below of this hike as well as a few pictures.
