    Rt 24 West, Chester, NJ (map)

    40.778660 -74.720245

  • I will have a clipboard
  • Easy winter hike in historic Black River Park. Our trek will take us along the beautiful Black River; some portions on Patriot's Path and short spur of Hacklebarney Branch - CNJRR. The park office is not positive the entire trail is open; we will investigate and modify our route as needed.  Bring sturdy footwear, water, snacks, lunch, thermos, non-cotton layers, and traction devices. As a precaution, WEAR ORANGE. Friendly dogs on leash welcomed. Heavy rain/snow cancels. Meet at Cooper Grist Mill parking lot (Route 513/Old Route 24) at 10:00 AM. If you have a pressing appointment, please consider another activity; we plan to take our time and enjoy the outdoors. Optional post-hike refreshment stop at local pub.

    I found out the hard way that humans don't fly. When they do they land hard. No hiking this weekend. :(

    Hi Terry, not familiar with the area, is there a street address for the location or an establishment nearby so I can use my GPS?

      David - if you click on the location, you can type in your starting point and it will provide directions. In addition, the GPS coordinates are noted if you want to plug into your GPS.
