This is a Girl’s Who Hike Official event hosted by Beverly Atkinson. The trail for my June GWHPA meetup will be Glen Onoko Falls and Lehigh Gorge Overlook trail located in Jim Thorpe, PA. This is going to be a good one. Glen Onoko is such a beautiful place with multiple gorgeous waterfalls. The trail is 3.7 miles long with an elevation gain of 1003ft. This trail is very rocky. In some places you will be basically climbing up rocks so it can be considered fairly strenuous. This hike will also be slippery, as there will be wet rocks. Please be aware of this when choosing the proper footwear. This is a very popular trail so it will most likely be crowded. There are multiple places to park along the road to the trail head. In order to get closest to the trailhead drive all the way down until you cross over a wooden bridge. The parking area is large and loops around but the trail head is right after the wooden bridge. This is where I will be at 9:00am for a 9:15am departure.

This hike is rated Yellow by the GWH rating system
YELLOW: Moderate hike,well-signed, elevation gain of between 1,000-2,000ft., low altitude. Novice hikers welcome!
But please be aware of the rocky conditions climbing up which will make this hike more strenuous than expected.
