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.

The hike is classified as Moderate to Strenuous (depending on your fitness level) and is about 6 miles long.
The hike should take 3.5 hours.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape.

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.

Sorry, Dave - I may see you guys at Norvin Green, but I'll be on the Hoya alumni hike. Just my luck to have a pick of 2 Norvin Green hikes on the same day!

Sorry I'll miss this one, this was my first NJYP hike, I'll be running in Run-A-Muck instead.

Have a good hike!  This was one of my favorites!

Hey Kevin, there will be a few notable uphill and downhill portions that can be strenuous.  The difficulty rating comes from the # of hills, difficulty of hills, trail terrain and overall distance.  Those that hike regularly challenging courses may think this on the top end of moderate and others will feel it is strenuous. I will always wait for the group at the top or a bottom of a significant hill, so if your worry is about being left behind, no worries.  As a reference, a number of hills will be noticeably more challenging than those at Tripod rock (steeper grade, longer distance on the hill).  Hope that helps!

...so, when we're talking "strenuous," do we mean very rocky or lots of up-hills and down-hills in this case?
