Event Description

Did you buy the Winter Hike Pass? Remember you can attend this hike at no cost, http://www.njyp.org/page/winter-hike-pass

 

Men's Health published an article stating that exercise is a hangover cure (see #9 http://www.menshealth.com/mhu/party/11-ways-ease-nasty-hangover).  Join us on New Year's Day as we Mythbust this one while climbing through Cheesquake State Park. But hey, if the exercise doesn't help your head know the group will go out post-hike for a late lunch (order coffee, #3, or toast, #5, or even greasy food #6) and drinks (Hair of the Dog, #4).

Missed a turn and ended up not making it. Maybe next time. Hope it was fun, and I wish everyone a happy, healthy new year!
