Moderate Hike at Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area

Join me for a less than four mile hike at Pyramid Mountain.

On this relatively easy hike we will meet up at the parking lot at 9:15 at Boonton Ave & Mars Ct, Montville, NJ 07045.

We will leave PROMPTLY at 9:30.

This hike will take us up hilly areas with some rocks. We will hike up the mountain on a slope for a while, then climb rocks for about fifteen minutes. Hikers should be able to climb 12 flights of stairs (there are 13 steps to a flight of stairs) without stopping to be comfortable on this hike. Hikers will be on a rocky climb for about 10 or 15 minutes.

We'll take a break for photos at Tripod Rock, then walk downhill along the reservoir coming back to the parking area where we started.

Total time for the hike should be 2 hours. We walk slowly. If we add "Lucy's Overlook", it will take an extra 15 minutes.

Sturdy hiking boots are strongly recommended. Use bug repellent to avoid tics. Bring a bottle or two of water and perhaps some snacks.

No children under the age of 14, only well behaved dogs on a leash.

Note: Hike will be called if it is raining. Please watch for e-mails cancelling.

DISCLAIMER: If you join us for this hike, please understand that you are responsible for your own (and your guests) preparedness and well-being and will hold no one else liable in case of injury or mishap. You agree not to hold the Organizer, Event Organizer, Assistant Organizers, or any other members responsible for any injury, mishap or any other situation that may happen at this hike.

    Great hike. Not too strenuous but good exercise. Thank you Misty for showing us around. It was nice to meet everyone.

    Can't remember who it was, but I heard someone talking about the Rock Gym in Fairfield and how they're looking for a training partner. I'm trying to get into rock climbing more, also go to the Rock Gym, and need a training partner. Please send me a PM if you're still looking for a training partner.

    Misty, below is the website where I got my medical kit pouch. It's a rip away medical pouch. You can strap it onto your other and just release the buckle and pull it off when you need to use it.

    Hello to all my first timers and old pals as well! Please read the hike description carefully. If the conditions sound challenging, please change your RSVP to the second hike of the day - there's less climbing on rocks. Please be courteous and change that RSVP to "no" if you won't be joining us and do so Satruday. I'ts no help to anyone to change it on Sunday. I leave my house long before the hikes start and won't see the change.
