April Field Trips


Ricketts Glen Hike

Leader: John Jakoby

When: Saturday, April 20, 2020; 9:00 a.m.

Join us for this approximate 3.3 mile hike through the Glens Natural Area. This is a moderate to difficult hike. From the Lake Rose Trailhead parking area we will hike down Ganoga Glen passing 10 waterfalls to Water Meet then back up through Glen Leigh viewing 8 more waterfalls with the tallest being 60 feet. We will pick up the Highland Trail and hike relatively flat terrain through Midway Crevasse back to the parking area. Bring water, a snack if you like, and your camera. Wear sturdy shoes as the trails may be slippery and there may still be some of winter’s ice. We will meet at the Ricketts Glen Park Office parking area at 9:00 A.M.
