Join the Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee (PVTC) for a hike starting at Blairstown Airport in Blairstown, NJ. The PVTC, a Friends Organization of the Kittatinny Valley State Park, will host the hike. The length of the hike will be 4-5 miles. The trail is cinder-based which provides easy, level walking. Bring lunch and a drink.
Because both the Sussex Branch and Paulinskill Valley Rail Trails are in some places adjacent to public or private hunting areas, please wear an upper garment that is either blaze orange or a bright, non-natural color.
ABOUT US: The Paulinskill Valley Trail (27 miles) and the Sussex Branch Trail (20 miles) are part of Kittatinny Valley State Park. Both trails are multi-use. However, no motorized vehicles are allowed. Hiking, bicycle riding, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing jogging and dog sledding are allowed. All dogs must be on a leash. The tracks have been removed from these rail trails, leaving a pleasant cinder bed path. Except at a few road crossings, the trails are level and offer easy walking, cycling, and horseback riding. Anyone interested in nature or railroad history will enjoy using these two rail trails.
