Event Details

The name Sourland is believed to be derived from “sorrel-land” which describes the reddish-brown colored soils encountered by the pioneering farmers..but this hike is anything but sour.  Located on the edge of suburbia, the 4,000 acre Sourland Mountain Preserve is a great way to escape and enjoy connecting with the outdoors.  We will enjoy a late-spring hike through pristine woods and rocky hillsides.  After we have our fill of the fresh air the group will head out for drinks and a late lunch (totally optional but always fun).

Member Cost:
$5 for the first 5
$10 for the next 6 to 25
$20 at the door

Non-Member Cost:
$20 online and at the door.

There are a limited number of tickets for sale. Tickets are not mailed, but your name will be kept at the door. All sales are final.

The hike is classified as moderate with some uphill.

Length of the hike is about 5.5 – 6 miles long and we will walk at a moderate pace.
The hike should take about 3 hours.
As with all hikes you must be in good, athletic shape.

If the group size is large we are going to look for a volunteer to act as a sweeper. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.
