Fall Hiking Schedule

Submitted by  Bob Taffer 973-764-7975 and Christine Billack, 973-764-1458

The Highland Lakes Hiking Club would like to extend an invitation to residents of all ages who enjoy hiking in the great outdoors to join us on one of our upcoming fall hikes. We are an informal, friendly group who look forward to our moderate Sunday hikes.

Hikers will meet at clubhouse parking lot at 10:30 AM. We will either walk from the clubhouse or drive a short distance to the starting point of the hike. It is important that each hiker bring water and lunch and wear appropriate hiking shoes. Most hikes will last an average of 4 – 5 hours, which includes waiting, lunch break and/or driving time. Anyone capable of hiking at least 5 miles at a steady, moderate pace is welcome. Hikers may bring their well-behaved dogs, which must be on a leash whenever we walk on a roadway. In the case of inclement weather, including snow or ice on the ground, or temperatures above 90 degrees, we will be unable to hike.

So, get those hiking boots out of the closet and join us for our next hike.

Oct. 20 – Norvin Green State Forest – Moderate 5 mile semi-circular hike to the pink trail, with some moderate inclines.

Nov. 10 – Barrett Road to Highland Lakes – moderate 5 mile hike along Appalachian Trail and ridge top trail to Highland Lakes.  We eat lunch at panoramic viewpoint overlooking Vernon Valley.

2013 Hiking Schedule:

Oct. 20, Nov. 10, Dec. 1, Dec. 22.
