Hike - Ramapo Valley County Reservation
sam. 22 décembre à 17:00
Event Description: “The Reservation,” located in Mahwah, is a popular Bergen County Park. Many visitors walk around Scarlet Oak Pond, a former gravel quarry, or climb on a wide, smooth-surface road to MacMillan Reservoir (which once supplied the Crocker Mansion on the far side of Ramapo Valley Road). It is a favorite of dog owners who exercise their pets. Ramapo Valley Reservation also offers challenging hiking. Outside the commonly used core area, the parkland has been left in its natural -- mostly hilly and rocky -- wild state, forming part of the eastern tier of the Ramapo Mountains. Several of its trails connect with those in Ringwood State Park to the west, Ramapo Mountain State Forest to the southwest, and Camp Glen Gray to the south, making possible a wide variety of rugged day-long hikes. One example, the Schuber Trail (orange; 4.7 miles + 1.8 miles from parking lot), passes through Camp Glen Gray and continues to its southern terminus at Skyline Drive. Planned Trail: Vista Loop (yellow; loop 3.75 miles; trailhead at parking lot; rated “moderate to strenuous”) – Destined to become the Reservation’s signature trail. Hikers can follow a single set of yellow blazes from the parking lot in a counterclockwise direction (recommended) to view three panoramas: Hawk Rock, Cactus Ledge – a spectacular new addition to the trail system -- and Ridge Overlook. Additional park features include Scarlet Oak Pond, MacMillan Reservoir, and MacMillan Brook (and its waterfall). Its "moderate-to-strenuous" rating is due to the steep ascent up to Hawk Rock and Cactus Ledge, plus the descent segment alongside MacMillan Brook Weather: This event will be held only if weather conditions permit (if a cancellation occurs, participants will be notified through a Meetup message). Intensity Level: 3/4 - Moderate to High Intensity (Click here for ALHM Intensity Level Descriptions - http://www.meetup.com/Active-Life-for-a-Healthy-Mind/pages/ALHM_Intensity_Levels/ ).
