The Jeremy's Run trail features a long section through one of the largest valleys coming off of the main ridge within the park. The trail crosses the stream 14 times; be prepared to get your feet wet on the lower crossings if the water level is high. Neighbor Mountain provides some obstructed views; the Knob does not, but it does go through a nice isolated section of forest. The mellow beauty of the stream valley and the feeling of remoteness give this hike a high rating.

This will be the first of several MOC hikes this month at Jeremy's Run; the Hiking Ninja series will also have a hike here on 30 April.
