We've done this hike in the summer at night and in the winter in the snow, now we'll do it in the beauty of spring! Park in High Bridge at the trail head. Trail may be muddy so light hiking shoes recommended. Pack a snack/lunch/drink and we will take a break in Califon - a cute country town. There are port-a-johns at the start and midway at picnic grounds. Kids welcome with parents if they can handle the distance. If you start and decide not to do the entire distance, you can turn around and head back on your own. Not a fast pace, but we will keep moving.

Registration Required. Share with friends but be sure to have them register please. Any changes due to weather and you will be notified via Eventbrite.

FreeWalkers shirts, hats and neck gaiters will be available for sale at the start - so arrive early if you'd like to purchase something. Cash, Check or Venmo.
