39th Annual New Year's Day Hike on the PVTC

Monday, January 1, 2024 - 10:00am

The PVTC, a Friends Organization of the Kittatinny Valley State Park, will host a 4-5 mile hike along the Paulinskill Valley Trail.  The trail is cinder-based which provides easy, level walking. Meeting at Footbridge Park in Blairstown. Bring lunch and a drink. RSVP to the group's Meetup announcement or e-mail pbk123@aol.com.

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.
