Stage 108

Section 4.1 of the Appalachian Trail, passing through the State of New Jersey, traveled from South to North, from mile AT-1324.8 to mile AT-1336.1, measured from Springer, Georgia.

The stage begins at the Gren Anderson Shelter and ends at High Point, at the junction with Route 23, where the High Point State Park offices are located. The state park has a small parking lot for visitors who come to the offices, and another parking lot, much larger, about 500 meters away, usable by all hikers, free of charge, prior registration of the vehicle in the offices.

The trail runs on a relatively flat path, high up on the Kittatinny Mountain ridge, in the Stokes State Forest, with beautiful panoramic views to the north and south of the trail.

Among other points of interest, it should be noted the spectacular view that can be seen from the Sunrise Mountain (1,653 feet), at the top (the highest section) is an open pavilion, an ideal spot for bird watching.

From this place you can see, to the east, the area of ​​New Jersey Highlands and Walkill Valley, and to the west the Delaware River and Poconos.

Also spectacular are the views to the northeast, in Dutch Shoe Rock, from where you can see the High Point and Walkill Valley.

The route of this stage we did with a group of mountaineering / hiking in the New York-New Jersey section of the Appalachian Mountain Club, led by Frank Zarb.

The profile of the stage, without major climbs or descents, in an area that is not especially stony, or difficult to walk, allow you to qualify your journey easily.

Aunque no faltan tramos de piedra, que a veces recuerda la travesía de Pennsylvania, el sendero es bastante llano

Although there are no shortages of stone, sometimes reminiscent of the Pennsylvania crossing, the path is quite flat
