Appalachian Trail Community Meeting
March 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The County of Warren and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy will be hosting a public outreach meeting on Wednesday March 23rd from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Warren County Library Headquarters located at 2 Shotwell Drive in Belvidere, NJ, 07823. Please join us to learn how Warren County can become an official Appalachian Trail Community, the benefits of this official designation, and how you can be involved.
Spanning 2,190 miles across 14 states, the Appalachian Trail draws 3 million visitors each year. While only about 13 miles of this exceptional trail pass through Warren County, our section along the scenic Kittatinny Ridge boasts:
- Natural attractions like the Delaware River, Mount Tammany, Dunnfield Creek, Sunfish Pond, Catfish Pond, Mt. Mohican, and more;
- Passage through New Jersey’s Worthington State Forest and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, which draws up to 5 million visitors per year;
- Nearby sites of interest like Turtle Beach, Old Mine Road, Millbrook Village; and the Mohican Outdoor Center.
This program will not only help promote Warren County as a natural gateway to the popular Appalachian Trail and the entire Delaware River region, but it will help connect visitors to our inviting communities, our charming downtowns and villages, our farmers and farm markets, as well as all of our other local businesses. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the celebrated Appalachian Trail, but we need help from community members like you. We hope you will join us!
