Apshawa Preserve - 1/23/10

Hiked mostly all of the trails at Apshawa Preserve with only about 1/2 mile overlap for a total of 7.7 miles. This is a no hunting park. The online map is very good but differs slightly from the paper map, a huge supply of which were in the kiosk in the parking lot. The paper map is the more accurate one. The differences are the online map shows the white trail continuing north out of the preserve to a scenic… Continue

Lewis Morris County Park - 1/18/10

Had the day off and wanted to stay close since I hiked Walkway Over the Hudson/Franny Reese State Park on Saturday. (Didn't write that up since it is NY but if anyone is interested, let me know and I will.) Lewis Morris County Park is listed as having no hunting at all so I went there. Turns out they do now have some hunting days scheduled:

Nothing spectacular at… Continue

Six Mile Run Reservation - 1/10/10

Located in Somerset County, off of Rt 27, hike info at:http://www.njhiking.com/nj-hikes-six-mile-run-reservoir.php.

It was supposed to be bitter cold so we wanted to do a short hike, nearby. We hadn't been to Six Mile Run in quite awhile, after doing the short BLUE there trail years ago and didn't think that much of it, as it skirted a lot of fields and such.

I just read that JORBA (jersey off road… Continue

Wells Mills County Park 1/1/10

We hike on New Years Day every year - it's a great way to kick off the new year. Weather was cloudy when we started out but not windy. The sun came out around noon and it got up in the mid-40s and was very comfortable.

We did the WHITE blazed 8.4 mile Penns Hill Trail, in roughly 4 hrs. There are other trails that allow you to make shorter loops. The hike starts behind the visitor center and is very well marked, there wasn't one instance where we questioned which way to go. Get the… Continue

Ramapo Valley County Reservation 01/01/2010

When I arrived at Ramapo Valley County Reservation at 9 am there were already about a dozen cars in the parking lot. (Parking lot is HUGE with plenty of parking.) The snow, which was fresh from the day before, was pretty heavily trampled. About 2 miles out the snow was untouched for several miles so my dog and I were the first to walk on it. That is when you know you are alone and the only… Continue
