Noon: Meet at Cheesequake Rest Area on the Parkway for carpooling. This rest area is at mile marker 123 (Sayreville area). Come into the building and we will meet in front of Starbucks.
2:00: Meet at Bear Mountain Inn for a walk, followed by a meal.
Carpools meet at noon on the Parkway. The entire group meets at 2:00 at Bear Mountain. If you are not carpooling, we are meeting at 2:00 at the Bear Mountain Inn. We will meet in the lobby by the gift shop.
Let's go to the Bear Mountain Inn for some walking, the zoo, some food and BREATHTAKING views of the Hudson valley. We will walk around Hessian Lake and visit the zoo as described at http://www.trailsidezoo.org . Afterwards we will pick one of the 3 restaurants at the Inn for an early dinner.
Since we are a green group and this is a little farther afield than we usually go, so let's arrange some carpools. I've already started the discussion thread for carpooling. If you are not carpooling, meet us at 2:00 at the Bear Mountain Inn. The fee for parking is $8.00, and this should be discussed in the carpool discussion.
The Bear Mountain Inn: http://www.visitbearmountain.com , has been closed for years to refurbish the interior. Now, it is a modern inn in a beautiful setting. We will be walking around Hessian Lake and visiting the zoo. Here is the trail map: http://www.visitbearmountain.com/files/603/BearMountainTrailMap.pdf
If you see a bear, don't try to pick it up and put it into your pocket. It probably won't fit, and even if it does, the bear probably won't enjoy it.
Bring money for an evening meal and parking.
