Sandy Hook - Fort Hancock at 10:00am

Let's change it up a bit! How about a mid-morning walk on Sandy Hook, Saturday February, 15 at 10:00 am. The poison ivy eating goats have gone south for the winter, but I hear there have been several snowy owl sightings.  The walking path is still snow covered, but the roads are cleared.  We'll meet at Fort Hancock parking lot, 4 miles past the front gate. We'll start out along the bay and officer's housing and loop around to the ocean side and back thru the courtyard. It's approximately 3.5 miles; all flat. Afterwards, we'll head over to Off the Hook restaurant, 1 Navesink Ave. Highlands, NJ- right over the bridge. Note: When you come up to the the rockets at Fort Hancock, bear to the right and park in the second parking lot on the left. 

And Only Heavy Rain or Blizzard Will Cancel.... Any Cancellations will be posted on this page... And E-mails will be sent to those who signed up... 

If in doubt... Please check it out... 

As a reminder,,,, Dogs are Not Welcome,,, Thank you for understanding.

    Hi Doreen, thanks for leading the walk. I'm still hoping I can move into one of the officer's houses!

    I can't believe you didn't see the walrus, he was at Gunnison Beach!

    Doreen; thanks for organizing this walk. It was great to be out walking in the snow. LOVED IT !!! Unfortunately, we didn't get to see any Seals or Snowy Owls, but at least we did get to see that Walrus ! (See my pictures). Can't believe that Doreen missed seeing that. She must have been looking the other way. :^)
