Yoga Hike to Panther’s Creek
September 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
YOGA HIKE from the Simpson Trailhead off Homestead St to Panther’s Bluff, Saturday, September 22, 10 AM.
No prior yoga experience or mat necessary. Most of the trail is flat along the river, but there are two short, steep climbs to the top of a waterfall.
Parking will be available at the Simpson Trailhead, just off Route 171. Our hike will begin along the O&W Trail, offering views of the scenic Lackawanna River. Just north of mile post 1, Panther’s Creek crosses under the trail. The mountain to the east is part of the Wildlands Conservancy’s 1500 acre property and the state’s first Native Plant Sanctuary. This is where we leave the trail and start our hike to Panther’s Bluff. The path is lined with native rhododendron and many varieties of wildflowers. It will be a moderate climb, on a rocky path. The hike is medium level and approximately 3 hours long and 4 miles.
The Simpson Trailhead is just off Route 171. Turn on to Reservoir Street, then immediate left onto Homestead Street (look for army tank). Park along the left side of Homestead Street, you will see the Trailhead sign. Lat 41*35’37.19”n, Long 75*29’01.27”W
Wear sturdy shoes & insect repellent. Bring water and a snack.
Suggested donation for yoga teacher is $5-$10.
