Years ago we had ended up around that area during one of our pick-a-trail-as-we-go wanderings around Bear Mountain, and realized later we just had skirted the edge of the town. This time we were armed with maps that showed Doodletown in more… Continue

Stokes State Forest - Stony Brook/Appalachian Trail Loop from Culver's Gap - 06/18 and 06/19/11

Coppermines - Rattlesnake Swamp - 5/29/11

We combined the Coppermines Trail, the AT, and Rattlesnake Swamp Trail to make a big loop, which serves up a bit-o-everything: streams, water cascades, mines (closed), ridge hiking with views of rural Jersey, a fire tower, lush trails, rhododendron tunnels, a swamp... very nice.

Coppermines Trail follows a stream for a lot of the way, and heads gradually…
