NYNJ Trail conference map # Hike update 10/28 I have a few items to go over for Saturday's hike: First both loops are solid intermediate hikes so if you haven't done any intermediate hikes in awhile you may want to choose to go on a future hike. If you can't make the hike please update your RSVP so I can move members off the waitlist. We are a large group but we are fortunate to have several hike leaders signed up so we can spread out and you can hike at your pace.I will have several paper copies of the route to give out and I will leave one copy on my windshield for anyone coming late. Temperature forecast as of today is high of 45 degrees for the hike and there are really no sheltered spots for a lunch break so plan accordingly. Please start your carpooling arrangements now. Please try to arrive by 9:45 so we can start on time. Lastly, I look forward to seeing all of you on Saturday.

Yes its a long way off but the reservation window is now open for 2021 season and if this year is or was any indication of how quickly parks fill up better early than never. Yes it will be crowded !!!!!!!!! Ricketts Glen State Park is one of the most scenic areas in Pennsylvania. This large park is comprised of 13,193 acres in Luzerne, Sullivan, and Columbia counties. Ricketts Glen harbors the Glens Natural Area -- a National Natural Landmark. Hike the Falls Trail System to explore the glens, which boasts a series of wild, free-flowing waterfalls, each cascading through rock-strewn clefts in this ancient hillside. The 94-foot Ganoga Falls is the highest of 22 named waterfalls. Old growth timber and diverse wildlife add to the beauty. EVERYONE WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR RESERVING THEIR OWN CAMPSITE ON THE http://www.reserveamerica.com WEBSITE. Each site holds up 5 people. Feel free to share sites to save money. Whoever books the site should be responsible for making sure you don't exceed the numbers above. These will be enforced by the park. BOOKING INSTRUCTIONS In order to book a site, you must go to the Reserve America website and search for Rickettes glen state park, choose the dates and modern non camping sites. Put in 7/2-7/5 I have booked Sites .073,009 and 066 for myself. Other 2 will be available for anyone who doesn't get a site - last minute. Try to book sites 060,068,071,072,070,069,067 and 062 first in the big loop so we can all be together. Post your site #in the comments. Spots are already filling up since they opened reservations early, so do not wait to long to book a site as you can probably find another members to transfer it to or worse case you will be charged $15.00 cancellation fee. Proposed plan: Friday campfire meet and greet Saturday waterfall hike: Sunday : open , beach, relax or can rent kayaks. hopefully see some fireworks Monday check out GEAR Tents, sleeping bags and other camping equipment are required. This is a car camping site, which should make it a little easier to pack food and gear. HIKING I plan to do the waterfall hike around 7.5 miles.
