Plainfield Rail Trail Hike
Hike along the Bushkill Creek in Northampton County.
Large trees line the trail on both sides, framing pretty views of Bushkill Creek as it meanders in and out of view. The trail crosses the creek five times on charming wooden bridges. One on the southern end offers a particularly dramatic view of the creek far below. We will hike north for four miles and then turn around to return to our cars. Bring lunch and water. Steady rain on morning of hike cancels. No calls morning of hike.
Hike / bike / on-water distance: 8 miles
Meeting place: Meet at the southern trailhead in Stockertown. Heading north on Route 33, take the Stockertown exit and turn right at the first stop sign. At the next light, turn left onto Sullivan Trail Road. Continue about 0.75 mile and pass a power station on the right. Park in the lot past the power station.
