Join Michael Helbing, Chairman of the Warren County Board of Recreation Commission for a four mile hike to kick off Warren County's Natural Resource Day at White Lake Natural Resource Area!
This is a fully open public event with no rsvp limit, so even when rsvps fill up here, feel free to simply show up.
We'll meet at the White Lake Parking lot at 8:45, along Rt 521, Stillwater Road, just northeast of Blairstown. From the traffic light on Rt 94, head on 521 north. It's a weird turn, so be wary of it. GPS often sends people the wrong place. There are three Stillwater Roads in very close proximity. DO NOT TRUST YOUR GPS! From Blairstown, it's only a few miles up.
On the right side of the road are white fences and a parking lot, directly across the street from the historic stone Vass Farmhouse. Park at the lot.
The hike will include Ridge and Valley Trail, and the somewhat new Blue and Red trails which I helped to develop. We will pass rock outcroppings, historic Marl Works ruins, lime kilns, and the remains of a forgotten girl scout camp. Short road walk involved to close the loop in.
There will be further festivities at White Lake immediately following the hike into the afternoon and many displays by local interest groups as well as tours of the historic Vass House and farmstead.
Learn about trails in Warren County and future plans for further development.
