Just posted pics/new album from hike to Sunfish Pond in Worthington State Forest earlier this month. Took Dunnfield Creek Trail - AT - Harvey Springs - Douglas (what a constant uphill!) & AT again to return to parking lot at Dunnfield. Lots of rock hopping and creek crossings. Gorgeous day. Practically no one else on trail till Sunfish. Would do again in a heartbeat!

New Year's Snowshoe Weekend At High Point, NJ

Posted on January 4, 2013 at 11:30am 2 Comments

New Year's Eve day some were preparing to watch the ball drop in Times Square.  But we were preparing to snowshoe while watching some snowflakes drop at High Point.  It didn't snow that day, but it did on New Year's Day.  Shoeing in the snow (unless we're talking blizzard conditions) always enhances the experience for us.  Then again...a bright, winter-blue sky sunny day is nothing to shake a snowshoe at. :)

Arrived at the High Point X-Country Nordic Center around 9:00am on Monday.…


No Celebrating At This Times Square - 11/24/12

Posted on November 28, 2012 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

Those of you who've hiked Harriman after Sandy came through and been past the 'infamous' Times Square junction know what it looks like there.  While there's destruction and felled trees strewn over & around nearly all the trails, it just seemed particularly significant to see this popular crossroad in its unrecognizable state.

In the Times Square area, this tree had been growing on top of a rock slab for heaven knows how long.  How many years since that slab had seen the light of…


Lichen Trail Damage & Bushwack At Harriman - 11/23/12

Posted on November 25, 2012 at 12:30pm 2 Comments

Hiked three days at Harriman over Thanksgiving holiday. Each hike took about 1/3 longer due to maneuvering blowdown damage. 

So many blows to ramble up, over, through, under and bushwacks around that it really chewed into our time.  In a very dark sense, however, it made for a much more challenging hike what with having to figure out not only how to get back on trail, but in many cases figuring out where the trail was in the first place!

On this particular hike…


Silvermine Lake/Turkey Hill Lake Loop, Harriman - July 22, 2012

Posted on July 27, 2012 at 1:34pm 3 Comments

We did Daniela Wagstaff's Silvermine Lake/Turkey Hill Lake Loop Hike last Sunday.  Great hike, but problems w/blazes and trail conditions.

On our return route at the junction of Long Path & Popolopen Gorge Trail (going toward Turkey Hill Lake) we totally missed a left turn blaze on the (Red) Popolopen Gorge Trail. Or more likely, the double-blazes weren't there…

Thanks Linda for the welcome.

My wife and I are fairly new to hiking. We have been doing a lot of reading and preparation for our new found interest. Mainly, we've been doing day hikes in Stokes State working towards a 2 day expedition on the AT some day. 

This website is very helpful and looking forward to interact with others here.

Thanks again for the welcome,

Thanks for the welcome Linda.

Sunfish is nice, and I actually enjoyed Dunfield a bit more that the AT the last time I went up there. I guess I like the stream and the crossings.

I did the AT/Dunfield loop in Oct., then in Nov. did from Camp Mohican to Sunfish and did the Kaiser/Coppermine on the way back to complete the loop.

Hoping to do from Camp M to the North, or maybe Mt. Minsi for the next outing....... I think I'm gonna have to put that off for a month or so though. Heading down to Virginia in a couple weeks and might do some of SNP while there if weather permits, maybe meeting up with some folks in the Roanoke area as well to possibly do Mcafee Knob on a dayhike while down there. Who knows, maybe we'll meet up out on the trail someday soon. Safe hiking, have fun..... Dave
