NJ AT SERIES: Blue Mountain Lakes Road To Culvers Gap

Join us for a lovely 10.6 mile hike along the AT and ridge of the Kittatinny Mountains. Although rocky in many areas, the trail is relatively level. We will be able to benefit from beautiful early spring views along both sides of the crest. The trail passes through oak and hickory hardwood forests with some conifers. Bring water/lunch/snacks/extra layer/head-lamp/traction device if appropriate.  This is an all-day activity; expect to be off trail at 4:30pm. Group size limited; refer to AT NJ Section 5. Meet at Culvers Gap parking lot at 9:00am; all participants must be willing to help shuttle hikers and drivers; key swap a possibility.  Optional after hike refreshment stop at local eatery.

    Just noticed that is the date of the AMC-DV Activity Social, so I'll give it a miss.

      Adrian - these dates were chosen over 5 months ago when Debbie & I reviewed our calendars. Unfortunately an obvious conflict but unknown to us at the time. Have a great time at the social.
