SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 22 GROUP HIKE. Join the Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee (PVTC) at 10:00AM on Saturday September 22 for a group hike starting at Washington and Green Streets in Columbia, NJ. The PVTC, the Officially Recognized Friends Organization of the Kittatinny Valley State Park, will host the hike. The length of the hike will be 4-5 miles. The trail is cinder-based which provides easy, level walking. Bring lunch and a drink. ABOUT US The Paulinskill Valley Trail (27 miles) and the Sussex Branch Trail (20 miles) are part of Kittatinny Valley State Park. Both trails are multi-use. However, no motorized vehicles are allowed. Hiking, bicycle riding, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing jogging and dog sledding are allowed. All dogs must be on a leash. The tracks have been removed from these rail trails, leaving a pleasant cinder bed path. Except at a few road crossings, the trails are level and offer easy walking, cycling, and horseback riding. Anyone interested in nature or railroad history will enjoy using these two rail trails. “THE SIGNAL” The PVTC publishes "The Signal" newsletter two times a year. “The Signal” contains interesting historical stories about various parts of the Paulinskill Valley Trail and Sussex Branch Trail. The annual membership contribution is $10 for an individual and $20 for a family. Larger contributions are welcome to help carry out our programs. Please make checks payable to “Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee” or “PVTC” and mail to PVTC, PO Box 175, Andover, NJ 07821.
