This week's hike brings us to a moderate trail in Palisades Interstate Park (Alpine, NJ) on Sun, Jan 30. The hike is 5 miles. Dogs are allowed on a leash. The hike goes by splendid river vistas on the way down to one of the prettiest spots in the park. The hike passes cascades of a waterfall and the ruins of an Italian Garden, built about 1900 by the sculptress Mary Lawrence-Tonetti.
For those coming, I suggest wearing layers of long sleeve shirts. Also, it's recommended to bring a backpack, 2 liters of water, chapstick, gloves, and a small trail sandwich.
We'll meet at 11 AM inside the State Line Lookout/Lookout Inn. Driving directions and public transportation are below. I estimate the hike will take three hours.

Please comment if you can make it.
If anyone wants to carpool, I'll be coming from East Rutherford, NJ (I live right across the street from the Rutherford Train Station) and would be willing to drive a little out of the way to carpool.
