Sometimes called the “Bermuda Triangle of New Jersey”, the Round Valley Reservoir was created in the 1960s and is the deepest body of water in New Jersey at 180 feet. Surrounding the three-mile-long, two-mile-wide reservoir is the 1,288-acre Round Valley Recreation Area. Join us as we ramble over a portion of the rugged Cushetunk Trail that encircles the reservoir. We will meet in the South Parking Lot at the Cushetunk Trail trailhead before beginning our adventure. After the hike the group may go out for drinks and a late lunch (always a great time).

$10 for the next 6 to 25

There are a limited number of tickets for sale. Tickets are not mailed, but your name will be kept at the door. All sales are final.
The hike is classified as moderate and includes several steep climbs.
We will hike 6 - 7 miles over a 4 hour period.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape.
If the group size is larger than 10, we are going to look for a volunteer to act as a sweeper. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.
Keira will be leading this hike.
What to bring:
Hiking boots and at least 2 liters of water (required).
We will stop for lunch/snack about half way through the hike so we recommend you bring something to eat.
We also recommend tissues, plastic bags for garbage, and similar items.
Heavy precipitation will cancel this hike; drizzle will not. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.
Finding the Group:
Meet in the South Parking Lot PROMPTLY at 10:30. Please allow extra travel time as many of these parks are harder to find and we cannot wait for those who get lost.
