Beacon Mtn, Scofield Ridge and Lamb's hill

  • Sep 20, 2014 · 9:45 AM
  • Beacon Mountain Gateway park trailhead

The wonderful views from Mount Beacon, the Scofield ridge and Lamb’s hill beckon us on this 8 mile moderately strenuous loop hike.  We will also pass
by a waterfall on the way back down where we can dip our feet.  See NYNJTC write up of the hike below. 

Please note depending on the heat/humidity I may alter the exact route on the day, so be prepared for a little bushwhacking/unknown routes. Sense of adventure a must!
