Announcing a new Meetup for New York Hiking and Outdoor Adventurers!

What: hike in Norvin Green State Forest in northern NJ

When: December 20,[masked]:45 AM

Price: $3.00 per person

Where:
Weis Ecology Center
150 Snake Den Rd
Ringwood, NJ 07456
[masked]

This will be an 8 mile hike in Norvin Green State Forest in northern NJ. You can check out a few pictures here.

We'll stop for a lunch at Chikahoki Falls which should look pretty cool if the temperature is below freezing. There will also be plenty of ups and downs that will give us some great views.

This will be a fairly challenging hike because of the weather and terrain and won't be suitable for everyone.

We're getting a late start because of the NJ Transit bus schedule. The 7:45 seems too early so take the 9:30, route 197 from gate 233 and ask the driver to let you off at Rt 511 and Skyline Lakes Drive in Ringwood.
Drivers click here for google maps to the meeting point/bus stop. There will be a 2 mile shuttle to the trail.

The meetup fee will be donated to the NJ Audobon Society that maintains the Weis Ecology Center, located in the Norvin Green or to the NY/NJ Trail Conference who maintains the trails that we'll be hiking on. Let me know if you have already contributed to either of these organizations and i'll waive your fee.
