The hiking terrain is moderately strenuous, but the pace will be slow. Children are welcome with adult accompaniment. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and appropriate clothing.
If the weather is especially inclement on the day of the trip, it will be rescheduled for Saturday, April 25th, 2020.
Parking may be available in the small parking lot next to the Route 34 Bridge. Otherwise, parking is also available in a large parking lot on Canal Road near the railroad trestle. In that case, just park and walk across the footbridge, then continue along the Canal towpath and back to the Route 34 Bridge.
