If you were to measure along the 2,178-mile Appalachian Trail, you would find the center point of the trail to be within a few miles of Boiling Springs, Pa., which is five miles southeast of Carlisle. Just 1.6 miles from Boiling Springs is the natural marker for the midpoint of the trail - the 1,056-foot-high Center Point Knob.
