2014 Resolution

Happy 2014 NJ Hikers. Perhaps a few of you read the long-winded blog posts that I put up in 2013. New year, new agenda. I would like to commit to making 2014 the year of the hiking "Vlog". I'm not looking to make these informative really (titles, places, maps) but concentrate on getting good shots and better editing, along with making up the music and perhaps trying different styles with the vids. Of course I'm happy to engage in any questions or comments (about the hiking itself or the…

Six Mile Run in the Snow - 1/26/14

With several inches of snow still on the ground, we decided to check out the BLUE trail from the Canal Road parking at Six Mile Run Reservoir.

This is a good choice for snow – the trail was well traveled with bootprints, and ski and snowshoe tracks.

The trails are easily managed on ski/snowshoes and the field edges are a nice option when there’s snow.

Edwin B. Forsythe NWR - 1/19/14

This park is mainly for birding and photography. The Refuge sits in an active area on the Atlantic Flyway’s flight path, and migratory birds just loooove hanging out there.

I’d looked up the park ages ago and found only a few short trails listed so it was not even on our “to-hike” list as it was too far to drive for a mile hike.

But the park caught my attention again…

Holmdel Park - 1/12/14

It had been ages since we stopped by Holmdel Park - so long ago that it pre-dates us keeping track in our trail blog.

We hadn’t gone in a long time because this is small park with short trails, where people go for a jog or a stroll. It really falls into the “light hiking” camp.

The hiking is pleasant enough, and varies between packed dirt trail with some…

Cheesequake - Green Trail in the Snow, again - 1/6/14

Our area had gotten around 8.5" of snow so we scampered out for a quick hike at Cheesequake before the expected rain was going to wash it away.

We chucked both the snowshoes and the MICROspikes in the car because we weren't sure what we'd need.

Wells Mills County Park - 1/1/14

For detailed hike directions, maps, and photos, visit our recently updated Wells Mills page.

We always try to get out and hike on New Year's Day. It's a great way to start the new year – and a good way to shake off the end of the holiday "eating season".

And the, um, wine and cheese from…
