DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
This used to be one of my favorite hikes and we have not done it in a few years, so I am bringing it back. We will hike approximately 4-5 miles mostly on pavement, in the Newark area and end at the U. of D. campus where hikers can enjoy Newark’s annual fall festival. Please meet and be ready to hike at 9:00 a.m. at the U. of D. parking lot at the corner of Haines Street and Lovett Avenue. Free public parking on the day of the festival.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Take Kirkwood Highway (Rt. 2) into Newark and continue (bear right) onto Main Street. Turn left onto Haines Street from Main Street (Starbucks on corner) and make a right turn into the parking lot just after Lovett Avenue. I will be parked near the corner to the left of this entrance.
