ANDOVER TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Kittatinny Valley State Park has found many reasons to celebrate the first day of February. In honor of reaching the second month of the new year, National Freedom Day, National Get Up Day, National Wear Red Day and park naturalist Lynn Groves’ 20th anniversary at the park, the free “Year 20/’19 Celebration Hike” is scheduled on Feb. 1 at 1 p.m.

Pre-registration is required for the intermediate-level hike for adults and teens, which will kick off from the gravel parking lot diagonal from Sheridan’s Restaurant and Tavern. The hike covers about seven miles of terrain through the township, including the rights-of-way of the former Lehigh and Hudson River Railway, through the park paralleling Gardner’s Pond and a portion of the Sussex Branch Trail, which comprise the new Andover Loop Trail still being blazed and to be fully unveiled on National Trails Day on June 1.
