Pavement to Pinwheel (P2P)
Posted: April 5, 2019
Looking to try hiking or to have a group to hike with? The Vernon Township Board of Recreation is sponsoring a free, 6-week trail hiking program beginning Tuesday, April 16, 2019. This family-friendly activity will introduce participants to the beautiful trails in Vernon.
The program will run on Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. (the same hike on both days each week). Each hike is approximately 2 to 3 hours roundtrip. We will take it slow, increasing the difficulty level each week and after six weeks, we will take the trek up the infamous Stairway to Heaven to the Pinwheel Vista.
