Four-day backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail, from the Delaware Water Gap at the PA/NJ state line to High Point State Park in NJ. Total mileage for this trip is 42 miles with 6,200 ft. of climbing elevation in total. Distances each of the first 3 days will be between 10 and 14 miles, and the last day will be 6 miles. We will camp along the way, and although there are no major peaks on this section of trail we will enjoy many fine views from the ridgeline that we’ll be hiking along (weather permitting of course). This trip is for experienced backpackers only, and each participant will be expected to be self-sufficient in terms of their own gear such as shelter (tent, hammock or tarp), food/cookware, etc. We will carpool from Rochester and spot a vehicle. This trip will be limited to 6 participants total. Because we are carpooling and will be together for four days, this trip will be restricted to only those participants that have been fully vaccinated against COVID. For further information and to sign-up, contact Reinhard Gsellmeier at GSEL...@gmail.com.

Join us for a 3 day backpacking trip in the High Peaks.  On Friday, we will drive to Keene Valley and start the hike at the trail head leading to Round Pond.  Camping is at the Bouquet lean-to about 4 miles from the trail head. On Saturday we hit the trail for a day hike of about 10 miles climbing Dix, Beck-horn, and Hough mountains returning to our campsite.  Dix & Beck-horn offers some excellent 360-degree views of the Adirondack high peaks.  Sunday, we hike out to the parking lot and head home.
