Sourland Mountain Preserve Hike

  • Sourland Mountain Preserve

    421 East Mountain Road, Hillsborough, NJ (map)

    40.471985 -74.692398

  • Meet us in the gravel parking lot.
  • Let’s enjoy a late fall hike over rolling hills in this easily accessible but largely undeveloped 4,000-acre park right in our backyard. This park includes the largest forest in central New Jersey, an important rest stop for migratory birds.

    Estimated length: 5 - 6 miles
    Estimated duration: 3 hours
    Terrain: Moderately hilly with hard-packed dirt trails that are rocky in many places. 

    I'll collect $2 from everyone to help cover the fees Meetup charges me to host a group of our size on their web platform.

    Please bring plenty of water and snacks. Dress in layers and wear trail shoes. No pets.

    Rain, snow, or icy conditions will cancel the hike. When in doubt, please check our Meetup site before heading out. 

    Let’s explore!

      The event was rescheduled last night because of the weather conditions. You should have received an email from me as well as an update from Meetup. See my post to Ash.

    Has this been rescheduled? Thanks

    • Elisabeth

      Yes. Last night, I rescheduled it because of the weather conditions. I sent everyone attending an email. You should have also received a notice from Meetup that it's been rescheduled. There is also a message posted on the discussion board. And of course, the event now has a new date. So, the new information is in all four possible places.

    Is there a way to do a slightly shorter loop? I'd love to go but don't know about the whole thing. Can anyone do a shorter loop with me? Maybe 3 - 4 miles?

    November 19

    • Elisabeth

      Hi Debbie! There are numerous trails in the park, so shortcuts are possible if needed.

      Another time. Thanks for updating your RSVP, Shyamal.

  • Elisabeth

    I'm looking forward to a fun hike Sunday. We do have a long waiting list. Please be considerate of your fellow group members and update your RSVP should your plans change. For those of you with a history of no shows or late cancellations, expect to be moved to the waiting list.
