What we're about

Get Out! That’s our goal. So get off the couch. Explore the area. Our group is mostly focused on hiking but we will enjoy other events in and outside the area. Meet other likeminded people, discover something about yourself and reach new goals! This is a great way to get fit, and stay fit in a nontraditional (gym) setting. All of our events are group oriented. There is a broad range of backgrounds, interests, experience and abilities within the NEPA Trail Mix group. Find the event that fits you.

Just a look at some of the future events this group will be challenged with; hiking, kayaking, camping, walking and for the more adventurous paint ball, white-water rafting, skiing etc.

Join the mix!

Paddle the North Susquehanna (17 miles)

Location visible to members

This may be the last chance to paddle this season!

We’ll start at the Wetlands Natural Area, north of Berwick and take a leisurely paddle down to Bloomsburg Boat Launch. Bloomsburg is a PFBC site so you’ll need a registration sticker or launch permit.

Along the way there will be lots of islands to break up the bigger river. There will be plenty of wildlife to spot and perhaps a tree or a big branch will fall (it’s already happened three times this season).

I also plan to explore a bit up Briar Creek as far as current and water levels allow (probably not very far).

Hike Across Delaware

Battery Park

Would you like to be able to say that you've hiked across a state? This is as easy at it gets! Join us for a 15 mile, mostly flat hike across Delaware. We will meet at the Gazebo to be bussed to Chesapeake City where we begin the walk back to Delaware City.

This is a PAID event, sponsored by the Wilmington Trail Club. Number of participants are LIMITED. Once you have PAID, then post a comment in the meetup. After Oct 27th, everyone who has NOT paid will be moved to "not going".

Here is the Website for more Information: https://wilmingtontrailclub.org/events/hike-across-delaware-had-2021/

Please READ the description below carefully.

The Hike Across Delaware (HAD) is held on the first Saturday in November. It is a fun, non-competitive, annual community event hosted by the Wilmington Trail Club and offering the opportunity to hike fifteen miles, the entire width of Delaware.

Check-in takes place at the Gazebo in Delaware City’s Battery Park between 8 and 8:45 a.m. at which time buses take participants to the start in North Chesapeake City, Maryland. Masks must be worn on the buses at all times. Delaware City public parking is available one block from Battery Park at 82 Washington Street.

We hike along the north side of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The route is mostly flat and lies mainly on land designated as the Canal Wildlife Zone. At the town of St. Georges, 10 miles along the trail, light refreshments and rest rooms are available. At this juncture, provisions are made to transport people back to their cars, if necessary.

The early November weather is usually ideal and the trees and shrubbery sporting their fall foliage, combined with a close view of boats, ships and barges using the waterway, make for a pleasant journey along the trail.

The trail is paved and comfortable sneakers or walking shoes, not hiking boots, are recommended. Although the terrain is not difficult, the distance requires adequate preparation. But, just think – you’ll be able to tell people you walked across an entire state!
