Join our group for a hike up in the Water Gap and a guided tour of a Wolf Preserve.
We will meet in the early afternoon and start the day with a classic hike of the Delaware Water Gap. From the summit, there are spectacular views of the “Gap,” which the Delaware River carved into the Kittatiny Mountains. If we are lucky, we may be able to see hawks catching the thermals as we enjoy our view of the river as it cuts through the Poconos at the state line.
This is a strenuous hike. The trail is rugged, in places steep, and includes an elevation climb of 1,250 feet, so a hearty breakfast and some fitness are needed to make your way to the top. We will allow plenty of time for breaks and enjoying the summit. Please pack water, snacks and a lunch.
Proper footwear also is essential; do not wear flip flops or sandals for this hike. The weather can be unpredictable, so we recommend that you wear layers.
After our “warm-up” hike, we will head to a wolf preserve where you can photograph, watch and listen to packs of Tundra, Timber, and Arctic wolves. Wolf experts will guide us through the preserve and educate us on the true behavior of wolves. Our guided tour will last roughly 1.5 hours. While in the observation area, you will be able to ask the experts any questions that you may have and watch the wolves play, interact with each other and, if we are lucky, hear them howl.
Price: $29.00, includes a guided hike, admission to and tour of the Wolf Preserve, light snacks, and guides certified in wilderness first aid. .
