Yoga Hike to Panther's Bluff @ 9 am

Our hike will begin along the O&W Trail, offering views of the scenic Lackawanna River. Just north of mile post 1, Panther's Creek crosses under the trail. The mountain to the east is part of the Wildlands Conservancy's 1500 acre property and the state's first Native Plant Sanctuary. This is where we leave the trail and start our hike to Panther's Bluff. Along the way we will see remnants of the D&H Gravity Railroad and Shepard's Crook, a late 19th century open air rail car tourist attraction.

The path is lined with native rhododendron and many varieties of wildflowers. It will be a moderate climb, on a rocky path. Near the falls we will join Tiffany Debish as she leads us in a relaxing yoga experience. This hike is approximately 3 hours long. $5 donation for Yoga instructor.
