Delaware Water Gap - Saturday March 31 2007

8 miles on the Appalachain Trail (rocks and challenging descent)

This hike has been done in the Spring/Fall (pretty), but never whent he trees are bare. So join us for a ridge hike on the AT through forests that overlook the Delaware River - views will be fantastic! (no leaves!) Since we start on top, there is a long downhill (sometimes steep with rocks), but the overlooks are a great payoff as we descend down to Gap. Bring water, snacks/ lunch, and wear sturdy boots. A stop for food, it time permits. This will be a shuttle hike.
