Appalachian Trail (2 Night/Cabin) Delaware Water Gap
Drive to an 8-man cabin (carpark nearby) after work on Friday. Whoever gets there first gets the campfire going! Saturday hike the AT all day (out and back) and spend the second night in the same cabin before rising Sunday morning to head back to the city. The cabin has 8 bunks with mattresses, pillows and a microwave, fridge. Bathroom facilities are a 1/4 mile walk up the road to the Mohican Visitor Center. Swimming (if it's warm enough) and canoeing are Saturday options as well! ***For anyone who went last year, this cabin is much smaller and does not have a full kitchen nor a dining table. Meals will be limited to microwave and grilling. Cost: $86/head for 2-night cabin rental + carpool gas + rental car pool if we need to rent one to get all the guys out there + food costs. Could easily reach $200 for the weekend. Limited to 8 guys. We could probably fit 2 additional guys on the floor if anyone's interested. This section of the AT is a moderate, relatively flat hike.
