Make a left onto West Brook Rd. Continue across Reservoir. At the T-intersection, make a left and continue on West Brook Road, and make a right on Magee Den Road, and left on Brunt Meadow Road, continue about 1 mile, make left on Crescent Drive. The trail is on the right about 200 yards Please try to leave NYC at around 7:45 a.m. on Sunday. Cars will meet at Quick Check Parking Lot, 382 Ringwood Avenue, Wanaque, NJ 07465 around 9:00 a.m.
You can also take NJ transit Bus 197 from Port Authority to Ringwood Ave and Conklintown Road. You have to make sure you make the 7:30 bus from port authority which arrives around 8:50 near the Quick Chek. It's literally a 2 minute walk back to the quick chek parking lot. A one way fare is like 10-14 dollars. You just have to make sure you signal the bus driver to let you off at the stop. On the way back to the city the bus stop is ringwood avenue and meadowbrook avenue. Make sure to signal the bus and that he sees you. I believe the buses come every half hour-45 minutes coming back to the city .
You have to be prepared for the hike - it may be cold, rainy, windy. You should have boots that don't get easily wet. Bring layers of clothes so that you can add and remove a layer as necessary. The clothes should be synthetic (cotton does not dry when it gets wet from your sweat). Don't forget to bring a wind/rain-proof jacket, gloves and a hat. You also should bring about 1.5 liter of water and lunch. We will plan to eat lunch at Horse Pond Mountian around noon.
If you are share ride with someone, please bring extra cash to share cost of gas and tolls with driver ($15-$20 per person) If you have any questions, please contact me. You will be getting email on Thursday with spreadsheet to organize the carpool. Chaiyut
