This hike begins in Emmerling Park and starts with some road hiking, follows Deer Creek, heads up Myers Hill, passes Hidden Pond, into the Hampton Nature Reserve, Crouse Run Valley, and finally enters North Park, ending at the Harmar Shelter. Meet at the Harmar Shelter in North Park at 9 AM. Directions: Take I279 north to the McKnight Road exit and travel 6.4 miles north. Take the North Park/Ingomar Rd. exit east and turn right at the third traffic light onto Babcock Blvd., then take the next left onto Hemlock Drive, then left again into the swimming pool lot. Follow the perimeter drive all the way back and bear right. The Harmar Shelter is ahead on the left, behind the guardrail.

  • You don't need to notify the hike leader that you plan to attend. Simply show up on time.
  • Please bring at least a quart of water (more if the temperature will be warm) and some energy snacks (e.g. Powerbar).
  • We will meet at the hike end point and carpool to the start point, leaving a sufficient number of cars behind to carry people back to the start when the hike is over.
  • The minimum unaccompanied age is 12.
  • Plan for each hike to take 6 hours (up to 4 hours for the hike plus up to 2 hours for sign-in, announcements, car shuttling, and so forth).
  • The hike is free. A suggested donation of $3 per person may be given to the hike leader on the day of the hike.
