If the summer heat is stifling you, come join us on this moderate evening hike at the shore. We'll traverse the wooded beauty of Hartshorne Woods, take in views of the ocean and maybe even catch glimpses of shore wildlife...think deer, not Snooki! Afterwards we will venture out for a late dinner and cool drinks - always optional but sure to be a fun night along the coast!
$5 for the first 10
$10 for the next 11 to 25
$20 at the door
$20 online and at the door.
The hike is classified as moderate. We will be climbing moderate uphill and downhill.
The total length of the hike will be approx. 5.5 miles long and we will walk at an easy pace.
The hike should take about 2.5 hours.
As with all hikes you must be in reasonable 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.
Keira will not be waiting for late people. PLEASE PLAN FOR SHORE TRAFFIC ACCORDINGLY! In fairness to those who arrive on time, the hike will start on time.
What to bring:
Hiking boots and 2 liters of water are required. Bug spray is highly recommended. You may also want to consider sunblock and a light snack.
Heavy rain will cancel this hike; light rain may not. Although temperatures at the shore are cooler, extreme heat may cancel this hike. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.
Take GSP South or North to exit 117. After the toll booth, keep left onto RT 36 South. Follow RT 36 South for about 12 miles. Make a right at the sign that says “Red Bank Scenic Road”. You will also see a sign next to it that says “Mt Mitchell Scenic Overlook”. Once you make that right, you will make another immediate right onto Navesink Rd. You will see the parking lot on the left after about 0.5 miles.
