Event Description

Join us on this early Summer hike to get to know fellow NJYPers and take in the beauty of this park, which happens to be the very first park designated in the Morris County Park System. Substantially greater today than it's original land area, we will explore and enjoy several of the many trails inside the 1154 acres that make up Lewis Morris Park. Afterward, the group may go for a late lunch and drinks...totally optional but always fun!

I apologize to those of you that were unable to find the group/hike leader. We'll be reaching out to you personally by email and do our best to make directions more clear in the future.

I think you guys were at the wrong place, Daniella. I found Maren in the parking lot, and we waited until 10:50 for people before we set out.

I was very disappointed by the organization of this hike, there were 5 of us waiting at the specified meet up spot, we sent multiple messaged via the contact hike leader link..We waited until 11:00 and took off on our own unguided tour.  This was my first event. FUTURE : The phone number of the event leader as well as the hike trail name should be notified in the activity feed for people lost or whom have questions.

It's not just passing showers, I'm hearing thunder out there. Is the hike still on?

Comment by Brian and Mike on July 17, 2015 at 10:03pm

Passing showers will not cancel this hike.  Please still meet up and wait for instructions from Maren.

I'll be bringing my walking sticks for sale or borrowing. See y'all there!
