Come and explore this New Jersey Conservation Foundation Preserve in the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Multiple trails and sand roads wind their way through the preserve's pitch pine forests and along ancient Atlantic White Cedar forests. The preserve contains the Four Mile Spring, one of several tributaries of the Rancocas Creek that spring from the headwaters swamps of this 1,227-acre forested preserve. We will also pass by and check out the Sprung. Note that this is a scouting hake as the leader has not hiked here before. Some areas may be wet. So be prepared for flooded trails. This will be a photo friendly hike. We will allow time for photographers to capture images. Bring water, lunch and snacks. Rain cancels. Register by contacting the leader or through Meetup. Group size is limited. The meeting point may change because of parking limitations. I'll be sending the meeting place update by Friday evening.

Further details will be sent to those who register. Please bring at least 1 quart of water. More is better, especially if it’s a warm day. Also bring a lunch and snacks. We will take an extended break for lunch by noontime or shortly after. If the hike is to be postponed due to inclement weather, notice will be given by 9 PM the night before the hike. Check this Meetup page for the latest.

Hike Rating 2B9 (moderate pace, soft ground/trails with little elevation change, up to 9 miles) For a map, please visit NJ Conservation web page at

    Anybody have any objections to a dog coming on the hike? If I don't hear anything, assume that dogs are allowed.

    Will this be a challenging hike? Dog friendly?

    April 30, 2014

    • Rich P.

      No, it will not be challenging as long as you are comfortable with hiking nine miles. I will consider bringing a well behaved dog as long as no one on the hike has any objections.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
