Delaware Water Gap, New Jersey & Pennsylvania

Sunday: I joined DaveTrek for another Memorial Day event. This was my first visit to the Delaware Water Gap. Two others from Queens rode with me. We met the rest of the DaveTrek group at the Visitor’s Center at Kittatinny Point, New Jersey, where we were transported by van to the launching point at Smithfield Beach, Pennsylvania.

Bear Mountain State Park, Orange & Rockland Counties, NY

The Jewish Outdoor Club had a day of hiking and barbecue to celebrate Lag B’Omer. This was my first visit to Bear Mountain, though I have photos of my grandmother visiting here decades ago. There is a large lawn near the parking lot, where we gathered and played Frisbee.

Harriman State Park, Orange & Rockland Counties, New York

I joined the Appalachian Mountain Club for this hike, though apparently Mother’s Day isn’t the most popular day for hiking, as there were only four of us on the hike. The hike began where the Ramapo-Dunderberg trail crosses route 106.

Mt. Washington State Forest, Massachusetts

I left Queens around 7:00 a.m. and arrived at the forest at around 9:15 a.m. This was another hike in which I was following in the footsteps of Daniel Chazin, who had submitted the hike to the NY-NJ Trail Conference website.
