Details

Lets' bring the week to a close with an invigorating spring walk at one of Bergen Countys' best parks for walks and biking. Get warmed up for the many hikes to come this season and enjoy the early signs of spring!

This will be about a 2 hour walk at a moderate pace on a paved level path, that follows along the Saddle River where we were once lucky enough, to spot a red fox! There is plenty of wildlife and new growth around if you take the time to look. We will first pass by the dog runs to enjoy our furry 4 legged friends and then pick up the trail nearer the exit to the park cross over a bridge and turn left at the "T" to see the waterfall in the bend, then head to the pond at the Glenrock section of the park and then retrace our steps back to the parking lot with a possible stop at the swings for the kids in the group!

MEET AT THE BENCH BY THE FLAG POLE, IN FRONT OF THE CAMP SUNSHINE SNOWFLAKE BLDG.

All you need are sneakers or good walking/hiking shoes or boots and don't forget your water and cameras of course for you shutterbugs!
