Hike Norvin Green, Ringwood NJ

June 2 @ 10:15 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Morris County Ski Club on a great hike in Norvin Green State Forest Saturday, June 2nd, 2018. The hike is considered moderate/strenuous due to the significant number of climbs including a steep climb to Wyanokie High Point.  This hike will offer a number of great views including the Wanaque Reservoir and if we have a clear day a view of New York City.  We will visit waterfalls and there are a couple small optional rock scrambles.

Time:  10:15 AM

Meeting Location:  New Weiss Center parking lot on Snake Den Road

Difficulty:  Moderate/Strenuous

Distance: About 7.5 miles
