Hiking the Appalachian Trail near Wawayanda State Park

Monday, August 29, 2005. Richard, Sara, and Daniel went hiking near the Wawayanda State Park where the Appalachian Trail (AT) crosses Route 94. We followed the AT up Wawayanda Mountain in Hewitt, New Jersey. It took us almost 2 hours to climb to the peak. We stopped many times to eat and drink water. We reached the viewing area, just off the Appalachian Trail at about 4:30 pm, then headed back down. We arrived back in Hillsborough at exactly 7:00 pm. Along the way home we stopped at a gas station and bought some ice cream.
