Mar 8-9: Backpacking up to High Point from the East: A couple of years ago, we backpacked up to High Point in NJ from the Southeast - now we’ll climb it from the other side! We’ll start near the state NY/NJ border on route 284, and slowly ascend through the Great Valley of the Appalachians to the High Point Shelter – 8.2 miles. The next day, we’ll climb up to the High Point monument and visit the state park (1.6 miles) before heading home! We should have everyone out by the middle of the morning, plenty of time to hit a diner on the way home! Moderate hike, though there is a significant climb at the end to the top of the monument. Limited to 16 backpackers. Hike Leader Kevin Drevik (856)[masked] or [masked].
