This group originally was based on"50 Hikes in New Jersey" which is a book by Bruce Scofield, and a great "bucket" list of hikes in the State of NJ! Many of these hikes include historical sites, buildings and gardens, and of course trails/paths that carried revolutionary soldiers and merchants through a new land.
That said, we are looking to expand our hiking experiences, which will include hikes from the book as well as other hikes that the leaders enjoy sharing.
In Spring/Summer 2016 we will be adding different hiking experiences such as yoga hikes and photography hikes, these will most likely have a cost, but it will be reasonable.
Hikes range from easy to strenuous, and varying in miles. This group is perfect for the any level hiker wanting to explore NJ trails.
