Sourland Mountain in Hillsborough NJ

  • Jan 1, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I will be hosting along with Larry V. approx 2 hour hike at the Sourland Mountain. It will be easy to moderate hike with slight incline. There will be some rocky areas also. Dress warm but in layers. You will get warm once you get moving. Bring water and snacks also.  


Use that address above for GPS.   When you are on 206 South, turn right on Amwell Road (514).  Make left on East Mountain Road.  Go approx 2 miles and the entrance is on right.   Please allow yourself plenty of time to arrive.  


We will start at 11am Sharp!!!  If you get there late, you could probably catch up to us.   Just follow the square markers.  

If it is raining or snows, I will reschedule to another date.

    Hey you have 25 people waiting, let's open this up to everyone and have someone co host. Hey, I've been on this mountain several times I will host a group. If anyone's interested.

      If I have known sooner, I would consider it. I really want to see how my first lead hike goes first. So I'm going to say.....Next time.

      January 1, 2014

    December 31, 2013

  • Helen W

    Friendly Reminder - Please change your RSVP if you are not attending. We have many on the waitlist that would like to attend. The people on the waitlist - Check tomorrow morning as some will not attend from NYE celebration.

    Any chance of expanding the headcount by a few? Would love to join you guys (and it looks like I'm not alone).

      It can be extremely difficult. For the city hike I make exceptions, and write out the itinerary. When I've had over 70 in undeveloped areas, I enlist co leaders to assist. That might be something to look into doing. You could also write out an itinerary of which turns you'll take. Somerset's Sourlands preserve has non standard blazing. Some of their preserves are horribly marked, like Washington Valley, and the maps are hard to follow.
      I'm sure you'll do fine though!

      December 30, 2013

    • Louis C. H.

      Totally understandable. Good luck with your first hike!

      But to anyone anticipating a can't-make-it NYE hangover, please update so we waitlisters can start squeezing in! :)

      December 30, 2013

  • Andrew

    Hi Helen, looks like a full list. Good going.

    December 30, 2013

    • Helen W

      Hey Andrew, If all goes well, I will host another Sourland's hike. Hope you are doing great.

      December 30, 2013

  • Teresa

    Yay Helen! I'm a maybe right now, but will try to make it!

    December 28, 2013

    • Helen W

      Don't wait too long....The cap list will be 20 people.

      December 28, 2013

    • Helen W

      Glad you can make it.

      December 29, 2013

  • Helen W

    Please make sure you change your RSVP if you are not attending so other can join us. Thank you.
