This hike will put you into scenic view overload as you cross hilltop meadows with views of the rolling hills of Pennsylvania all around. But beware - those rolling hills will give you quite a workout. This hike involves several fairly steep up and down stretches. There are some building complexes on the horizon that you need to turn a blind eye to and apparently there is a shooting range nearby that you will need to tune out but for the views, it is well worth doing this hike. This…Continue

I'd always thought this park was just a take-a-stroll, play-some-soccer kind of park until I stumbled upon it's trail map online. The longest trail on the park map listed was the…Continue

Headed a little south to try to eek out just a little more fall foliage and I did find some of the last of it. I hadn't actually intended to hike Ted Stiles Preserve in conjunction with Washington Crossing State Park but there appeared to be a connection so I took both maps along just in case. Once I got to that possible connection point and saw how easy it was to hop from one over to the other I thought, what the heck, and continued on. Turned out to be a 14 mile hike total.

Little did I know that a scant hour later I would be lost and bleeding, running blindly…Continue
Decided on Green Lane Park in southeastern Pennsylvania in an attempt to find some fall foliage, and it ended up being a good choice. While open areas like the highways on the way or around the water were past peak or had mostly leaf drop, in the forest on the trails themselves the leaves were gorgeous.
We'd never been to this park before, so we…Continue

JORBA maintains multi-use trails south of the Manasquan River in Allaire State Park and their map is available online. Although I read about trails north of the river, I could find no map online. NJ DEP kindly sent me a copy and here is a scan of it. What is nice about these trails is that loops can be formed with multi-use and hiking only trails, I…Continue

Basically we got tired of trying to sort through the Deer Regulation Sets for dates, and decided to just take all the dates listed across all the…Continue
