Work off that Thanksgiving feast and join us for a 7+ mile trek along an interesting, diverse and beautiful section of the Appalachian Trail. Our hike will begin on the impressive mile-long Pochuck Boardwalk through marshy areas and over the 110-foot suspension bridge; climb over stiles into cow pastures and walk through very muddy meadows chock full of puncheons. Climb the Stairway to Heaven - 1000' elevation gain over a steep and rock slab step trail switchbacking up Wawayanda Mountain. A short side trail to Pinwheel Vista will present a spectacular view of the Kittatinny Mountains, farms in the valley below and on a clear day the High Point Monument is visible. Bring water/snacks/lunch; wear over-the-ankle boots and ORANGE since it is hunting season. Parking is along the road and limited - please carpool. Meet at 8:30 SHARP on Rte 517 just before Carol Drive, Glenwood.
Please note: Currently this trail is closed. However, the park ranger was pretty confident it will be open by the 24th - thus, there is a possibility the location may be changed. Stay tuned.
