Neversink North Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This area is a lovely natural retreat and offers a hefty uphill climb to enjoy the views from the top of Neversink Mountain. Witch’s Hat Pavilion is what remains of Neversink Mountain Hotel and, despite some graffiti, is a nice place to have a picnic lunch. This is a strenuous hike. Most of your time is spent going uphill.
Since this is an out-and-back hike, you’ll retrace your steps all the way back. The trek down will be much quicker because it is almost entirely downhill. Keep your eye out for markers and blazes to guide you back to the parking area."
--Lori Litchman, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Philadelphia - 2nd Edition (Menasha Ridge Press).
"Neversink is a 900-acre mountain with a trail system hugged on the south by the Schuylkill River and on the north by the city of Reading. The preserve allows hikers to feel far from the city by exploring the 500 acres of protected land with scenic vistas of Mount Penn and Reading."
--Susan Charkes, AMC's Best Day Hikes Near Philadelphia (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
