Hike the beautiful Ken Lockwood Gorge then Eat Together at Casa Maya.

The path along the water in the Ken Lockwood Gorge is truly beautiful. It's an easy hike and just so pretty. Let's meet in the Commons Park parking lot near the SOUTH end of the trail along the Gorge in HIGH BRIDGE, walk to the north end, walk back, and finish up with late lunch/early dinner at Casa Maya at 1 Main Street in High Bridge only a short distance away from where we begin the hike. (Casa Maya opens at 12 noon on Sundays - am scheduling this meet up at 11:30 hopefully will work for those who attend church services also.)

This is about a 7.5 mile hike. Dress in layers avoiding cotton as the baselayer. The ticks are also likely to be heavy with the warm weather. BRING WATER AND A PROTEIN BAR! And bug spray if you have some. (I'm bringing mine and will share.:)) The hike will take about 3 hours to complete.

(See link below for where we're accessing the trail.)

Driving Directions

Take I-78 to exit 17 (westbound) or exit 16 (eastbound) for Route 31 towards Washington.  Drive about 2 miles on Route 31 then turn right on Main Street.  In 1.1 miles turn right on Bridge Street, proceed 390 feet, then left on Main Street.  Continue for .2 mile through town then turn left at The Commons sign to the parking lot.  If you pass Church Street, you just missed the entrance to the parking lot. Main Street dead ends in another block so there is an opportunity to turn around and approach from the other direction.

    Hallo! I didn't see that anyone else was bringing a guest, but I was hoping no one minded if I brought my son along? He's 15, but he's an experienced hiker-- we've been to Ken Lockwood before, we love it!

    April 8, 2013

    • Mark

      I don't see anyone objecting to it Roma so I think it would be just fine to bring your son.

    I look forward to this hike and have done many times before. It is flat and the water has gentle rapids ( great for fly fishing) and there are various places to stop and rest. Let us hope for nice weather!
