Annual Hike N Swim
WHEN: Sun 7/13/14 10:00 am (weather permitting)
WHERE: Ramapo Reservation
HOST: John, Tyne & "Joey" Runfeldt
This was 1 of my favorite hikes!! This is a “moderate” hike, where we walk along one side of the pond then go uphill along a path to the top. At the top there is a reservoir where the dogs can go swimming. (Optional) *It is recommended that you use a long line if you would like your dog to go swimming so you can reel them back in. Here we will break for a little while then walk the same exact path back for an easy descent back down to the bottom, past the pond and to the parking lot where we began. This walk would take approximately 1 hour. Note there are some hills, wear sneakers! Bring water, poop bags and probably some towels!
Directions: From Route 80, Route 4, Garden State Parkway
Take your highway of choice to Route 17 North, it will put you onto Route 17 in Paramus. Take Route 17 North for approximately 12 miles to the Exit for Route 202 (Ramapo Valley Road).
