New Jersey, Delaware Water Gap,
Don't let Winter stall your outdoor fun and exercise this year! Consider the benefits of Winter Hiking: unique and beautiful scenery, no bugs, and, oh yes, burning off those holiday calories! Winter hiking, however, involves unique skills, gear, and risks compared to 3-season hiking. This is your chance to learn about clothing, equipment, and safety necessary for winter hiking, whether your plans entail local parks or more remote wilderness. Appalachian Mountain Club Leaders, Jeff Fritzinger and Barbara Beatrice, will focus on the essentials, demonstrate gear, and lead hikes to practice skills at the beautiful Mohican Outdoor Center, in Blairstown, New Jersey. Snowshoes and traction rentals will be available if needed. Cost includes Friday and Saturday lodging, casual Friday dinner buffet (6-8pm), breakfast and a trail lunch Saturday and Sunday, and Saturday dinner. Bring your own adult beverages and your pack and water bottle for hiking.
