Join us for an 8-mile hike featuring two lovely loops in the beautiful NJ Highlands. We begin with a steep, rocky climb up Torne Mountain to Osio Rock to catch great views including a must stop at the mysterious and controversial 'Stone Living Room'. Our second loop will bring us to Otter Hole and a climb up the Highlands Trail to the Carris Hill Trail which affords stunning views of the Wanaque Reservoir. We will stop to admire Chikahoki Falls on our return route. If weather and time permits, we can add additional mileage and trek up to Wyanokie High Point. Bring sturdy boots, water, lunch, snacks; no dogs allowed. There are several water crossings. Consider this an all-day activity so we can spend extra time to admire the views and be outdoors. Meet at the Otter Hole parking lot on Glenwild Avenue at 9:00am SHARP; it is a small lot so please carpool.
