Brodhead Watershed Assn March 17 Cherry Valley's Ridge Trail Hike In Monroe County

The Brodhead Watershed Association will host another in its series of Get Outdoors Poconos hikes on March 17 on the Ridge Nature Trail in the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Monroe County.
Join hike leader Carol Hillestad for a challenging hike of about 2 miles starting at 10:00 a.m.
Cherry Creek meanders for 15 miles through Cherry Valley and into Delaware Water Gap, and is often easily accessible. But to see the headwaters of this lovely little creek takes some effort.
After a scramble up to the ridge, stop to catch your breath at the top, where long, ridge-to-ridge views will reward your effort.
A woods road trail leads through a field studded with eastern red cedars. Many animals visit this wild banquet hall, smack in the middle of the Atlantic flyway. Birds love the cedars’ tiny blue “berries” (actually odd-looking cones), as do many mammals such as meadow mice, rabbits, foxes, possums and coyotes.  And white-tailed deer, of course!
The hike series is administered by Brodhead Watershed Association and supported by a grant from the William Penn Foundation.
The hike is free, but registration is required. Directions will be provided upon registration.
To register, call 570-839-1120 or 570-629-2727; send email to:  For information about this and other hikes in this series, visit the Get Outdoors Poconos webpage.
