From the Scott Farm AT Center near Carlisle, PA to the Doyle Hotel in Duncannon, PA is about 15 miles. So, a round trip is in the neighborhood of 30 miles. I've done this hike several times, and will now establish it as a section for tracking the FKT.
I think the proper way to do this section is to eat a burger and drink a beer at the Doyle Hotel before heading back to the starting point at Scott Farm, but others may not want to have their time dependent on the speed of service at the Doyle.
Next time I do this section (which should be in June) I will post my time (which won't be very fast) to establish a baseline FKT.
I did this out and back section on 6/23/2017. Total distance was 30.2 miles and total elapsed time was 11 hours 38 minutes. Start time 7:07 am. Finish time 6:45 pm. This time includes time spent at the Doyle Hotel eating a burger and drinking a beer. I can't offer any verification, but do you really think I would falsify such a slow time?
