Midweek Discovery Hike: Stateline/Surprise lake and Bellvale Mountain + icecream
mar. 25 septembre à 15:45
As with all "Discovery hikes", I have not done all or some of this before, so come with a sense of adventure, read the write up included below and print/bring map. We will be doing a car shuttle with this hike so if you arrive late you will miss us. Pace: Moderate
Distance: ~ 8-9 miles (estimated)
Hike description: Starting at State line lookout take the blue trail up the hill, and with a left on yellow Earnest Walter trail we will enjoy our first view over Greenwood lake and continue hiking to surprise lake. We will navigate a few steep rocky sections (not a full on scramble but using your hands will likely be necessary). Once we reach the AT, we will follow that for 6-7 miles to our meetup spot and will then head over to the Creamery for a well deserved icecream! More details about the section along the AT can be found here (but we will be doing it in reverse):
https://www.nynjtc.org/hike/print/62 We will of course need to driver(s) that took us to the start of the hike back to their car(s). Hike Map: NYNJTC North Jersey Trails and Sterling Forest trail. Dogs - Please contact me if you wish to bring your dog, dogs need to have hiked with the group before. After hike food/drinks: If the group wishes we will head to a place in the Greenwood lake area for something to eat/drink after we finish our hike/creamery visit. What to bring: Bring water (2 liters minimum), insect repellent, suntan lotion, lunch/something to snack on, map and a first aid kit. Directions: We will be parking in the AT parking lot just east of Bellvalle Creamery on NY17A. If you are coming up from Greenwood lake and reach the creamery/start heading back down hill you have gone too far. Meetup Donation: There is a $1 suggested donation for the hike this helps cover the cost of the dues meetup charges organizers for using the site. Cancellation Notices: We will be monitoring the weather prior to the hike and if conditions are not suitable the hike is subject to cancellation. Please make sure to check your email or the meetup site prior to leaving your house, cancellation notices will be sent prior to 8 am if required (but most probably the night before).
