Terrain is varied with little elevation gain, some rock ledges and pleasant forest. Sedimentary pudding stone which encircle the pond is the area's surface rock. Several portions of trail may be wet and/or icy; pack traction devices. WEAR ORANGE as a precaution. Hike may be lengthened if there is interest and trail conditions are favorable. Wear sturdy footwear, bring lunch/snacks, water; heavy rain/snow cancels. No dogs allowed. Meet at 9:30am; trail-head parking is at the east side of Clinton Road; 7.5 miles north of Rte 23, West Milford, Passaic County.

    I was wondering if snow shoes might be needed?

      Thank you for responding Terry. Sorry, I'm a novice at this, appreciate the advice. I found Traction assistance devices in Sports Authority. The box says they are good for ice, but you mention ice spikes or stabilizers. Would they be better or the same things.

      thanks Jim

      Jim - More than happy to help you out and a huge welcome to a newbie! We have found micro-spikes to be the best - they really hug the ice and they are light. I also have stabilicers which also work well but much heavier. So bottom line, we all want to lessen the weight in our packs; we carry micro-spikes all winter. Hope this helps.
