Overview

1D/E5 hike. slow, challenging, about 5 miles. All welcome including kids with their parents with the skills, strength, and gear. Visits to some of the wildest landscapes hereabouts. Hope is snow. We do up/ down three times, the last one of the great vista of the lake, mt, NYC skyline. Be prepared for what is on the ground ( including the use of snowshoes), the predicted temperature, and dust off your curiosity My pace is truly slow, the challenges of steep and woods walking satisfying, and the distance will only exhaust the leader. Bus Riders: 7:30 NJ Transit Bus # 197 from PA: arrival around 8:43 riders must ask the driver to stop at Rt 511 and Skyline Lakes Drive. If you see the Diner ahead and the driver is not slowing down, let him know loudly and clearly. They do forget sometimes. Drivers: Meet at the intersection of rt 511 and Skyline LAKES Drive. Landmark is a diner, parking is in the shopping mall to the rear of the diner, unless you are having breakfast. From the south 511 is exit 55 off of IS 287. go north. You are half way there when the really big dam is passed on left. From the North, it is exit 57 off 287: Follow the signs to get to Skyline Drive. The number could be different, so follow the signs. Skyline Drive goes up the mountain, and down. Stay on it till it dead ends at a T intersection with 511. Landmark is a lake is straight ahead. A merge intersection happens just before the T. Stay left. At the merge is a school above you. At the T turn left / south. You know you are close when at the Westbrook drive intersection coming in from right. Continue ahead to the diner.
