Lets' try again to warm up the season together with an invigorating walk at the other end of the Saddle River County Park! We will start at Dunkerhook (the dark corner) Park, named by the Dutch who settled in this area in the early 18th century. Following along the Saddle River to the Fairlawn area we will next reach the Easton Tower Historical site where we will take a short break for some photo opts!l We will then continue on to to the Otto Pehle area with its' scenic pond and numerous geese. After a short break we'll circle the pond and retrace out steps back for a different perspective!
This will be about a 2 1/2 hour walk covering about 6 miles which includes breaks. The trail is shared with cyclists, dog walkers, etc. so again park courtesy and rules are for walkers to stay to the right of the trail to allow everyone to pass safely. It is a paved and level trail so depending upon the weather all you need are good supportive, warm walking/hiking shoes, boots or sneakers. PLEASE BRING WATER to stay hydrated, snacks and cameras of course! Come enjoy one of New Jerseys' Gems! Directions below:
