Event Description

Come out and enjoy the spring air with a scenic, vigorous hike in the Highlands of NJ.  This hike sports a 360 degree mountain top viewpoint where we can see far-away hills, sparkling reservoirs and the NYC skyline as well as a beautiful waterfall (which thanks to a wet winter and spring, should be flowing very nicely!).  We will meet for an optional late lunch after the hike.

If our hiking group is large we might look for 2 volunteers to act as sweepers. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.

Precipitation will cancel this hike.  Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.

How to find the group:
Meet in the dirt parking lot right on Snake Den Rd.  It is a large area and immediately visible from the road so there is no mistaking it.  It will be on the right hand side as you are driving up Snake Den Rd.
Please arrive on time as we will not wait for latecomers.

Take 287 North to exit 55.  At the end of the ramp, make a right onto Ringwood Ave.  Follow that for 4 miles and make a left onto Westbrook Drive (It will be just past the Skyline Diner which is on the right side).  After about 1.5 miles, you will get to the intersection, bear left.  After approx 0.5 miles, turn left onto Snake Den Rd.  Follow that for about 0.6 miles to the dirt parking lot on the right, right off the road.
