Lake Rutherford

Lake Rutherford Professional Review and Guide

"This hike makes use of several of the secondary trails in High Point State Park along with the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) to create a nice loop along the ridge of Kittatinny Mountain and along the banks of Lake Rutherford.

That trail descends to Sawmill Pond, which you’ll be able to see below you. Just beyond that junction, the A.T. makes a sharp left bend and heads southeast through the head of a high hollow. After passing the hollow, the path climbs onto another ridge and makes a sharp bend to the right (southwest) at a couple of nice vantage points overlooking Lake Rutherford."
