St. Johns Ledges and Caleb's Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike has a steep ascent and a steep descent—up to and down from St. Johns Ledges—but the climb is less than 0.5 mile. Ninety rock steps installed by a trail crew from the Appalachian Mountain Club aid you. The cliffs around St. Johns Ledges are often used for rock-climbing instruction. Both St. Johns Ledges and Caleb’s Peak offer wonderful views.

From River Road, enter the woods heading south on the A.T. The Trail then travels toward the base of St. Johns Ledges and soon reaches the ascent of 90 stone steps. At mile 0.5, reach the top of the ledges and good views of the Housatonic Valley and the town of Kent. Continue south along the A.T. another 0.7 mile to Caleb’s Peak (elevation 1,160'). The ledge outcrop on its summit provides great views to the south. Return north to the parking area on River Road via the A.T."
