Local Attractions

The first thing you will notice at Kirkridge is the wide expanse of vista and open space of  land to explore. Located on the Kittatinny Ridge of the Appalachian mountain range, our location offers the perfect place to walk, hike or just sit and observe the sky. From our scenic overlooks, birdwatchers may delight in the flight of red tail hawks, an occasional bald eagle or owl. Photographers will love the autumn foliage, walking in the woods as spring breaks forth or the shadows of the winter sun. Hikers will enjoy the numerous trails around the mountain, many of which interconnect with the Appalachian trail. For a meditative experience, all guests are to walk the outdoor meditation labyrinth, enjoy a quiet walk around the Kirkridge tarn or visit our neighboring megalith park known as Columcille.

THE JOURNEY

Above the mountains the Geese turn into the light again Painting their black silhouettes on an open sky. Sometimes everything has to be inscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. Sometimes with the bones of the black sticks left when the fire has gone out someone has written something new in the ashes of your life. You are not leaving You are arriving.
