Pre-Spring Hike: Sunday 3/3/13 South Mt Reservation at Locust Grove, South Mt Reservation

March 3, 2013 from 11:15am to 1:15pm
Welcome in an early spring day with a group of local folks who like to hike together.  We will do the perimeter of So Mt. reservation, perhaps a bit of the Lenape trail, the Rahway as well. It may be wet and muddy, so boots are recommended.  This will be about 3.5 - 4 miles, windy and hilly. All ages welcome - but if you start with us and decide NOT to finish you are on your own. Estimating 2 hours, give or take.   Can also find details on SOMa on Foot on FB.  See More

Hey Rob!

It depends... are you guys going to get lost again? :)

Just kidding. I would like to, but plans are up in the air since it is the holiday weekend. However, if it turns out I'm not doing anything, I would love to join you guys. What time are you starting out?
