Hike The Best of Hickory Run
Hickory Run State Park has many beautiful areas, and we’ll pick from several options for the day's exploration: A short hike to a waterfall for a warm-up, then there are several great trail loops overlooking the Lehigh Gorge – we’ll choose one based on time and other hikes. A visit to Boulder Field is a must – we can hike to it or drive there (so we can hike more of the other trails). This hiking tour is a great way to see the best of Hickory Run – a really nice park with a surprising history – and still be back around 4pm for a rest before dinner.
EQUIPMENT: All hikers are expected to wear appropriate clothing and (most importantly) sturdy footwear such as hiking shoes or sneakers with lugged soles. Tennis or basketball shoes, or any flat-soled shoes, are NOT recommended. Please also plan to bring a pack with water, snacks, sunscreen, bug repellent, camera, any necessary medical supplies, etc. Tell your JTX tour guide if you need to borrow a pack - we have several sizes available.
** Note that although this tour is available certain days, there is one tour given per day - it may not be this one: the first reservation is what determines the day’s tour. Call to find out what tour is going on a specific day, or if you’re planning ahead, reserve the trip you want to take!
