Hike Columbia Trail and Ken Lockwood Gorge

We will start the hike at the Columbia Trail parking lot in High Bridge near the center of town. After about 1.5 miles, the trail enters the magnificent Ken Lockwood Gorge, where steep slopes reveal rapid water and dramatic rock formations. From here, we will climb back up to Columbia Trail and walk back to the parking lot on Columbia Trail.

The hike is about 7 miles on fairly flat ground. Estimate about 3 hours to finish the hike. Please bring water and snack/food. 

Bad weather cancel (forecast of 40% or more chance of precipitation or any storm/thunderstorm forecast)

If the parking lot at the trail head is fill up, you can park at the parking lot at 30 Main Street, High Bridge, NJ.

      I couldn't find it either. And I lost 4G signal once I got there so I'm now seeing these messages. I saw signs to a state park and figured since I was there already why not hike that instead :-) Hopefully next time I make it to the group hike but this wasn't too bad.
