Rt 24 West, Chester, NJ
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.
