Saturday, June 29 at 9 AM (No Rain Date), D&L Mountain Top Trailhead

Leader: Liz Rosencrans

Are you ready for a challenge? Have you been wanting to get a little off the beaten path? Join us! Walk 9.4 miles of open and unimproved D&L Trail with DLNHC’s Director of Trails & Conservation. This out-and-back hike will traverse a section of historic railbed that is set to undergo construction in the near future to develop an improved trail section. This is an all-day hike set at the pace of the slowest group member – please only consider this hike if you are comfortable walking 10 miles with a slight grade. Bring sturdy footwear, layered clothing, rain gear, lunch and snacks, and 1.5L of water. We will break for lunch along the trail and take minor breaks as needed. There is no seating along the trail, if you are uncomfortable sitting on the ground during breaks, bring a chair that you can easily carry for 10 miles.

Terrain: uphill, rocky, rural, long = challenging hike
