Not included:  Train fare is not included (since not everyone will be taking the train), lunch (you may bring your own or order from a local deli) or anything else you purchase during the trip.

About the hike:

This is a level 4-5 hike.  It is about 3 miles.  There are rocks and roots on the path in some places and there will be leaves on the ground that may make it a little slippery.  You will experience the exertion of walking up 10 flights of stairs two separate times for the uphill portions.  There are spectacular views from the top of the cliffs and beautiful cascading mini waterfalls in the “kill” (creek).

Can I come alone? Yes, most guests do! It’s a great way to meet new people.

Do I need a ticket? Your name will be on the list when you arrive.

Dress Code:  Dress for the weather.  Hiking shoes strongly recommended. Please no sneakers

Ages: 21+
