Sunday, November 25, Day Hike, Camp Glen Gray, Mahwah NJ
Originally developed as a Boy Scout camp in 1917, Camp Glen Gray (http://www.glengray.org) is nestled in the hills among thousands of acres of Bergen County and New Jersey State park land. Meet us at 10:00 am at Sklyine Drive's upper parking lot. We'll tour some of the historic grounds that include the Old Guard Cabin (pictured above), Mothercroft shelter, Whitehead Library, Memorial Pavilion, Mary Post Field (and discuss her legend), and many other cabins and points of interest near and afar from the camp's Lake Vreeland. We can also discuss the possibility of using one of their cabins or campsites for a future trip. We will then leave the camp to hike on the historic Revolutionary War era Cannonball Trail, and other nearby trails in the Ramapo Mountains. The hike will be approximately 4 to 5 hours, and 6 to 8 miles with moderate elevation. Some trails will be very rocky; please wear hiking boots or shoes, dress in layers, pack a lunch, and/or energy snacks, and carry about 2 liters of water.
