Turkey and yams and stuffing oh my! Work off that Thanksgiving Day meal (and the leftovers) with us on this moderate 5 mile hike. The fresh air and up and down hills will keep you healthy and strong while the Young Professionals who will be hiking by your side will keep you entertained. Afterwards we will venture out for a light lunch and warm drinks with new friends who were made along the way. PS, The first one to spot a turkey along the trail will win a ticket to a future hike.
$5 for the first 5
$10 for the next 6 to 25
$20 at the door
$20 online and at the door.

David will be leading this hike. David will not be waiting for late people. In fairness to those who arrive on time, the hike will start on time.

Take Interstate Route 287 South to Exit 47 (Montville, Lincoln Park), and turn left at the bottom of the ramp onto Main Road (U.S. Route 202). Continue on Main Road as the road makes two sharp turns – first to the left, then to the right. In 0.6 mile, just before reaching a fire station, turn right onto Taylortown Road. Continue on Taylortown Road for 1.8 miles until it ends at Boonton Avenue (County Route 511). Turn right onto Boonton Avenue and continue for 0.7 mile to the entrance to the Pyramid Mountain County Park Natural Historic Area, on the left side of the road, opposite the Mars Park Corporate Center.
