Shark River Park

Hike along the Shark River and over boardwalks in this Monmouth County park.

4.2 miles. Trail surface is mostly easy, a mix of root-filled-dirt and sandy trails. Minor hills.

River’s Edge trail is rated as challenging but it just follows along the river, and there are a couple of rough-wood stairs… that’s about it. Road noise throughout the…

Cheesequake – Green Trail in the Snow - 12/14/13

We decided to grab a quick hike at Cheesequake State Park as the snow started falling on Saturday.

The temperature was somewhere in the 20s but it was beautiful out, sunny and very comfortable.

We just did the Green Trail which is around 3-ish miles. The boardwalk that snakes through the cedar swamp is now finished being re-built, and the trail no longer detours…

5.5 miles, surface ranges from easy path to rocky trail. One decent downhill to the shoreline and then another uphill back to the upper trail, where there is considerable road…

Thanksgiving Weekend at Harriman

When I got into this backpacking thing this year, I never thought it’d be anything more than a summer time hobby to get out, shoot some photography and get some exercise.  Turns out though, that I enjoy the planning, physical challenge, and quite honestly, the solitude, so much that I can’t wait until next May to get out there. In fact I now see winter backpacking as a new chapter with it’s own challenges and rewards.…

Round Valley Recreation Area

Surprisingly rugged workout from a central NJ park, with some views of beautiful Round Valley Reservoir.

The park also has something rather unique in NJ: remote campsites that are accessible only via hiking or paddling.

10.4 miles. Lots of up-n-down hills with a surface that varies between flat, packed dirt to tons of softball-sized rocks… the kind that…
