June 15, 2024; Kurmes Preserve; Pocono Heritage Land Trust

A refreshing, though slightly challenging, hiking loop of 2 miles. Rhododendrons and Mountain Laurels hug the trail, and some will likely be blooming. A creek meets the trail at certain points. Meets at 335 Devils Hole Road, Cresco, PA.

 

July 20, 2024; Cherry Creek Crossing Loop; Smithfield Township
A fun-loving waterside loop to and from Minisink Park. About 2.5 miles of mostly flat, gravel trail except slight hill to and from creek. Stone creek crossing is delightful though it does require some dexterity. Estimated time: 1.5 hours. Meet off Oak Street in Delaware Water Gap (NOT at Minisink Park.)

August 17, 2024; Rail Gap Preserve; Pocono Heritage Land Trust

Rushing water and Hemlock forest: a short but remarkable creekside hike of about 0.5 miles. Rocks and roots sporadically in path. Some slight hills. Estimated time: 30 minutes. Rail Gap Preserve is at 3555 Schafer Schoolhouse Road.

Sept 14, 2023; Glen Park; Stroudsburg Borough ONE WEEK EARLY

An adventurous rhododendron-lined out-and-back trail along the lower Brodhead Creek. About 1.5 miles. Wooded trail with roots, rocks, some mud, and varying inclines, but no large hills. Estimated time 1 hour. Meets at: 152 Collins Street, Stroudsburg.

Oct 19, 2024; Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge; U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service START TIME 9 AM

An invigorating stroll over the creek and rolling meadowed hills of the sunny Cherry Valley. About 2 miles. Paved trail; several cardio-inducing hills. Estimated time 1 hour. There are two Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuges in the area. We will meet at the one that was once a golf course: 2138 Crossdale Rd, Stroudsburg, PA. Please make sure that you are heading to the right address before you start your drive. Please note that dogs are not allowed at this location.

You are welcome to stay after the walk for the Friends of Cherry Valley Fall Festival at 10am-2pm!

November 16, 2024; Hidden Lake; Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area
Hike around this pristine lake on a crisp, fall day. 2 mile loop. Wooded trail with uneven rocks, roots, mud and some slight hills. Estimated time 1.5 hours. Meets at main parking lot, where there are picnic tables and bathrooms.

December 21, 2024; Lower Hornbeck Trail

A winter solstice walk to a waterfall! Join us on a pristine journey over idyllic footbridges to the waterfall and then back again. About 2 miles. Path is mostly flat gravel with some rocky sections, bridges have steps up and require a bit of dexterity. Estimated time 1.5 hours. Meets at Lower Hornbeck's Creek Trailhead. If lot is full, there is overflow parking across 209. Give yourself plenty of time to arrive, as this is our farthest destination from town this year, and overflow parking is a short but noticeable walk to the trailhead.
