Event Description

Due to the hurricane this hike has been changed from 11.4.12 to 12.2.12. If you cannot make the new date send a refund request by 11.20.12.

This 3,000 acre park, located adjacent to the D&R Canal, is an oasis of wetlands, forests, farmlands and old fields offering miles of paths for hikers, bikers and horseback riders.  Originally targeted as the site of a reservoir, the site remains open to the public to explore.  After the hike the group may go out for drinks and a late lunch.

Length of the hike will be about 6 miles.
We will walk at a moderate pace.
It will take 2.5 – 3 hours.
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 recommended.
At least 2 liters of water (required).
We will stop for a snack about half way through the hike so we recommend you bring something to eat.

Heavy precipitation will cancel this hike; drizzle will not. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.
