Event Description

The Terrace Pond hike AND SWIM is back! This loop hike is unique in that it will include a stop off at a beautiful spring fed lake that you can actually take a swim in or just relax next to. Along the way we will also pass by cool cliffs, neat rock formations, glacial erratics and rock scrambles. Pack a light lunch, extra water, a bathing suit, water shoes, and a towel!

Bathing suit, water shoes, and a towel (all optional).
Hiking boots and water (required).

Precipitation may cancel this hike. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded. Extreme heat may also cancel this hike.

From 287 North or South (or the Wayne NJ area) take rt. 23 North into West Milford.  From the 287 intersection, go approx. 9.6 miles and make a right onto Clinton Rd. Follow Clinton Rd for about 7.8 miles. You will pass Clinton Reservoir and beautiful, thick woods.  The trail head parking is on the left side of Clinton Rd and is an unpaved lot. There are 2 lots close to each other. Using these directions, it is the 2nd (and larger) dirt lot.  If you pass the gas pipeline and start seeing lots of civilization, you went just a little too far!  Don't get lost on Clinton Rd though, because it is supposedly haunted!
