Celebrate National Trails Day with a hike of the Tusten Mountain Trail

May 22, 2013

NARROWSBURG, NY — Celebrate National Trails Day by joining Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River Park Rangers on Saturday, June 1 at 10:30 a.m. for an informative guided hike on the Tusten Mountain Trail. This free hike will meet at the Tusten Mountain Trail head, which is located at the Ten Mile River Access on Crawford Road.

The Tusten Mountain Trail is a moderately difficult, three-mile loop that takes you through the historic remains of the Tusten Settlement as you climb to the summit for a magnificent view of the Upper Delaware Valley. Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots, bring plenty of water, snacks, sunglasses, bug spray, binoculars, as well as a hat.

The Tusten Mountain Trail is one of six trails featured in the park’s “Take a Hike!” brochure, which gives the names, locations, descriptions, and difficulty levels of trails in the Upper Delaware River Valley. It also provides a checklist to keep track of the trails you’ve hiked, which can be turned in upon completion for a “Take a Hike!” patch.

For more information about the Tusten Mountain hike and other guided hikes planned for this summer, call 570/685-4871.
