On this early spring morning we are venturing out to investigate one of New Jersey’s mysteries, the Tripod Rock.  Weird NJ reports that there are theories that this rock was purposefully balanced by prehistoric humans while others give all the credit to glacial movement.  Read up here on what to watch out for then grab your boots and reusable water bottle and meet us for a springtime romp to the rock.

The hike is classified as moderate- some uphill and downhill parts.
The hike is about 4 miles long and will take 2 to 2.5 hours.
