Can you leave your vehicle at the trailhead for the duration of your trip? We plan on camping on a Thursday night and then returning on either Sunday or Monday.

From the GAP website:

"This parking lot in West Newton is adjacent to the West Newton Visitor Center, and there is additional parking on the opposite side of PA-136. There is room for about 20 cars, although as a busy trailhead, it can be quite congested on a summer or fall weekend. Free to park. Overnight parking allowed."
