Wolf Watch Hike

  • Aug 17, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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. .

The address and directions of the meet-up location will be provided only to registered participants. An RSVP through the Meetup site does not reserve your spot. To register, you must go to our website, http://www.terramaradventures.com. And visit the event page here and click on "register."

    Is anyone interested in carpooling?

    August 9, 2014

    • Tim P.

      I would love some company for the ride up. Where do live? I usually drive towards the Poconos via the blue route to 476.

  • Jill

    I would love to do this, but I don't think my son could handle this hike. I know he would live to see the wolves too.

    Is there an option to only tour the wolf preserve and skip the warmup hike? I do some hiking but I would not call them strenuous

    July 27, 2014

    • Carl E.

      We could work something out if this is what you wanted.

      July 29, 2014

  • Ivelisse

    This is exciting! Look forward to it
