See the Delaware from the top of Jensen’s Ledges


July 17, 2013

LORDVILLE, NY — On Saturday, July 27 at 10:30 a.m. a park ranger from the Upper Delaware National Park Service will lead a hike of the Bouchoux Trail, known locally as Jensen’s Ledges.

This difficult two-mile round-trip hike leads to a panoramic view of the Upper Delaware River Valley at the summit of Jensen’s Ledges. Quarrying of bluestone was once a large industry in the area, as evidenced by the large bluestone piles that are still visible today.

Meet at the Bouchoux Trail head. To get to the trail, turn onto Bouchoux Road. Travel 2.8 miles to the end of the road. The trail head is on the left side at the end of the cul-de-sac. Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots. Water, snacks, bug spray, a walking stick and your camera are recommended; the view from the summit is remarkable.

The hike is free. Call 570/685-4871.
