Sky Meadows Old Appalachian Trail Six Mile Loop

Sunday May 19, 8:15am - 1:30pm
@ Sky Meadows State Park

We’ll head up the Gap Run and North Ridge trails to the AT and then turn off onto the old AT. After the old trail rejoins the AT, we’ll walk back up to the mountain top meadows and go left on Ambassador Whitehouse to the overlook. Then we’ll head back down via Ambassador Whitehouse and North Ridge.

We’ll spend some time in silent contemplation, both on the trail and at the viewpoints.

Total gain for this six mile loop is 1260 feet. 1000 feet of that gain is compressed into a single 1.3 mile climb, a real heart pounder. The rest of the hike is a stroll in the woods and meadows.

Please bring plenty of water, bring bug spray, wear sturdy shoes, dress in layers, and pack snacks/lunch.

Please get a trail map at the entrance station.

We'll meet in the main parking area in front of the historic mansion. Restrooms and water fountain are available. Dogs are welcome on leashes (park rules). Entrance fee will be $10/car. We may arrive before the entrance station is manned in which case it will be honor pay. You'll need cash or check.

Hope to see you at the ever beautiful Sky Meadows!
