Important info about St. John's Ledges in Kent
from our Appalachian Trail Committee Chair, Dave Boone:
In response to serious abuse by large numbers of non-hikers at South Gate, we (the AT Committee) met with a number of town and state officials a couple of weeks ago to come up with plans to hopefully control a large part of the crowd.
One of the items decided was to close River Road at St. John's Ledges hiking parking. A gate is going to be installed, ideally right after the pulloffs just beyond the trailhead parking. The gate will be closed between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. We're also sealing off the old High Bank area, but that shouldn't affect climbing access. One other item that may affect climbing groups/schools, etc. is that there won't be a place for buses to turn around. We'll have signage to that effect at the intersection of Skiff Mt. Road.
