Hike description: We were looking for a NJ hike to escape from the snow. Large portions of this hike were completely snow free. This looks like a popular place for local dog walkers. I think this would be a prettier hike after everything turns green. I did enjoy walking next to the farming fields, where there was a wide mowed area, sometimes completely snow free. The dogs had a great time getting some running in. This hike passes two lakes, which look like they would be great for taking dogs swimming in during the summer.
Note: A sign noted that deer hunting is allowed from October 1 - February 15th.
Year to date miles: 68.6
|The trail markers were on posts. On occasion I wished there were a couple more posts, but checking the map, it wasn't difficult to determine where you were.|
|We were disappointed with the start of the hike. All of these snow-free fields, and the trail is on the snowy portion!|
|Heading into the woods, there were signs of mountain bikers and horses.|
|Now this is what I'm talking about - a mowed, snow-free path next to the fields.|
Run puppies, run!
|A small pond we passed - too early for swimming|
|A parking lot next to the lake loop. A lot of dog walkers started here, and just did the lake loop.|
