Event Description

This hike is fantastic for beginners who are in somewhat good athletic shape (you easily can run up steps and you are ok walking for hours) . It is a loop hike that "runs along a scenic reservoir, goes by two unusual glacial erratics - Tripod Rock and Bear Rock - and reaches two panoramic viewpoints." Snow is melting, spring is coming, let's all start getting in shape together!

Specs:
The hike is classified as easy to moderate and is about 4.1 miles long.
The hike should take 2.5 to 3 hours.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape.



Member Cost:
$5 for the first 10 to buy a ticket
$10 for the next 11-25 to buy a ticket
$20 at the door (so please register online)

Non-Member Cost:
$20 online and at the door

Tickets:
There are a limited number of Tickets for sale. Tickets are not mailed, but your name will be kept at the door.
Actual hike is subject to change depending on weather conditions, fallen trees, etc. All sales are final.

Sweeper:
If the group is large we are going to 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.

Hike Leader:
Noah will be leading this hike.

What to bring:
Hiking boots or sneakers (boots are always recommended)
Water (required)
Snacks, a light lunch, etc.
Toilet paper, tissues, plastic bags for garbage, etc.

Inclement Weather:
Heavy rain might cancel this hike but we often walk in light rain. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.

Directions:
Take Interstate Route 287 to Exit 44 (Main Street, Boonton) and bear right onto Lathrop Avenue. Turn right at the stop sign onto Main Street (County Route 511), proceed along Main Street for 0.3 mile, then turn right onto Boonton Avenue. Continue on Boonton Avenue, still designated County Route 511, for 3.3 miles to the parking area for the Pyramid Mountain Visitors Center, on the left side of the road (the Visitors Center is opposite Mars Park, about 0.8 mile north of the intersection of Route 511 and Taylortown Road).

Parking:
The lot at the Visitor's Center is very small but you can park on the street. Just make sure your tires are not over or on the white line or you will get a ticket.

As always, I wanted to kick off the start of hiking season with a trip to Pyramid Mountain! With spring right around the corner, it will be a great time to experience the beauty of Tripod Rock and Bear Rock -- one of the largest boulders in NJ as well as some great lookouts to experience. Don't miss out!

Instead of having to fight off the crowds in hoboken, come out for some adventure and exercise!!
