Halloween Fright Hike: Night Hike to Tinker Cliffs

Avoid trick-or-treaters in style with a sunset ascent of Tinker Cliffs.  We’ll meet at 5:15 PM at the Daleville Park & Ride, then carpool to the Andy Layne Trailhead ($1.00 carpool fee).  This hike is on the short side (about 3.4 miles each way), but has strenuous climbs along the ascending ridge toward Scorched Earth Gap.  Sunset is around 6:23 for our latitude on Halloween, so realistically we’ll be in the dark even before arriving at the cliffs, so be sure to bring a headlamp (or at least a flashlight) with good batteries.  If there’s enough interest, we could night hike an extra 3.25 miles to complete the loop with the old “Bad Weather” Trail and scare hikers or bears staying at Lamberts Meadow.
