AT Series: Vernon (NJ 94) to Hewitt (NY-NJ State Line)

  • Nov 2, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Appalacian Trail Parking Lot

Join us for a 9+ mile section hike along the Appalachian Trail. Our trek will feature descending 1000' on Wawayanda Mountain over the stone steps of the Stairway to Heaven. Take a blue blaze detour to Pinwheel Vista and marvel at a great view of NJ's farmland - a patch quilt of color; spectacular views westward toward the Kittatinny Ridge as well as to the north with the Shawangunks and the Catskills. The ridge line has large boulders and pudding stones; over-the-ankle boots are recommended. Be prepared for several muddy/wet areas.  Bring water/lunch/snacks - wear ORANGE as a precaution. Group size limited; refer to AT NJ Section 1 map. Meet at 9am sharp; all participants must be willing to help shuttle hikers and drivers. Contact the L for additional information.

For further information, refer to the official AMC website:

    Thank you all for joining me on a beautiful fall day along the AT. Our trek had an unexpected visitor which made it even more memorable. Thanks to Carl for leading his group and Steve for being our sweep. The after-hike was great as always. Looking forward to future adventures.
