Worm Moon Hike

cliffhangersmilesbigthumbOn Thursday evening, March 1, Christina Fehre will lead a night hike through the trails at the State Line Lookout area. Hikers should plan to meet at the Lookout, accessible from the northbound Palisades Interstate Parkway at Exit 3 (U-Turn available for southbound travelers — click here for detailed directions), at 7 PM. Hikers should bring flashlights with them. The route will traverse about 3 miles in about 1.5 hours, over moderate hiking trails.

The March full moon is known as the “Worm Moon,” an Algonquin Indian name given it because, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, “At the time of this Moon, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting the return of robins and migrating birds. … Roots start to push their way up through the soil, and the Earth experiences a re-birth as it awakens from its winter slumber…”

For more information about this hike, please call 201-615-9226.
