Moderate hike with some steep sections interspersed. Plan for a hike of about 5 miles (Ridge Trail) and 2+ hours. We'll meet in the gravel parking lot that is by the pond. Google Sourland Mt Preserve to make sure you know where it is before the event, otherwise it can be easy to pass the gravel driveway off of East Mountain Road. Wear sturdy shoes for rocky trails. Of course, bring snack, water, bug spray and sunscreen.
