TUSTEN, NY — National Park Service rangers will host a hike on the Tusten Mountain Trail on Sunday, June 22 at 10:30 a.m. This free hike will meet at the Tusten Mountain Trailhead located at the Ten Mile River Access on Crawford Road, off State Route 97 five miles south of Narrowsburg.
The Tusten Mountain Trail is a moderately strenuous three-mile loop that will take about two and a half hours to complete. Wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots, bring plenty of water, snacks, sunglasses, bug spray, binoculars, as well as a hat. Bring along your camera for pictures of the Delaware River from the summit.
The Tusten Mountain Trail is one of six trails featured in the park’s “Take a Hike!” brochure, which gives the names, locations, descriptions, and difficulty levels of trails in the Upper Delaware River Valley. It also provides a checklist of the trails. Once you hike them all you’ll earn the “Take a Hike!” patch.
