Trail Conference Membership & Development Director Don Weise will be speaking about how to find and plan great spring hikes in the area. He will also discuss safety tips for hikers.
Plan your “playlist” of spring hikes, with these truly extraordinary, less-discovered day trips. Don, author of Circuit Hikes in Harriman and West Milford Baker’s Dozen will share his favorite “off-the-beaten-track” trails, viewpoints and destinations. Brush up on spring hike planning and safety tops and hear about the expanded 2nd edition of Circuit Hikes In Harriman, Don’s definitive guide to local loop hikes and trail runs.
