Enjoy the stunning rolling terrain of the Jenny Jump Mountain Range with panoramic vistas of the Highlands and the Kittatinny Mountains. We'll do a out, loop and back hike of all the trails in the forest including the Ghost Lake Trail, Orchard Trail, Spring Trail, Swamp Trail and Summit Trail. Scenic views at various places with one view of the Delaware Water Gap and another of Great Meadows. The total distance is 7 miles. There is 600 feet of elevation gain in the first two miles. I expect this to be an all day hike that will last until the 3-4 PM time frame. Please bring at least 1 quart of water and something to eat. Also, please be prepared for hiking in snow in case there is still some snow on the ground. Also bring a lunch and snacks. We will take an extended break for lunch by noontime or shortly after.

AMC rating is 2C7.

2= Moderate pace

C= Hiking trails/gentle rolling hills

7= 7 miles

Note that we are not meeting at the main park entrance! Do not follow the Jenny Jump signs. We are meeting at the Ghost Lake trail head parking lot on Shades of Death Road. Besides the Meetup venue Google map link, detailed directions will be sent to all participants. If the hike is to be postponed due to inclement weather, notice will be given by 9 PM the night before the hike. Check Meetup for the latest. Rain cancels.

    Views were outstanding and the trails were easily marked. A must do for those who have not hiked there.

    Jenny Jump was my first AMC hike 3 years ago, led by Rich. It was great to return and relive the same hike again with Rich and friends I have made over the past few years. Sunny and fun. And once again Happy Birthday Rich!!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
