DOC October Hike at Ricketts Glen State Park

DOC Logo
On Sat., Oct. 18th join the Duncannon Outdoor Club (DOC) for a day at one of the most beautiful state parks in PA. We will be spending the day at Ricketts Glen State Park, known for its 24 pristine falls ranging from 9 foot to 94 ft. We will be learning about the history of Ricketts Glen and hiking safety from park naturalist, Judy Adamic. Then we will hike over moderate to strenuous terrain at an average pace as we walk a total of 3.2 miles down the falls trail and back up again. It is known as the most magnificent hike in the state and one of the top hikes in the East. Pack a lunch, plenty of water and your cameras. Wear hiking boots as the trails by the falls are wet and slippery. This is an all-day event in that the ride there will be approximately 2 hours one way. Meet at 8:00 am at the Duncannon Family Health Center to carpool. Please reimburse drivers 10 cents per mile for gas. Call 395-2462 or email to register.
