Overview

Central Jersey Afternoon Hike (2A4-5) 1 PM to 3 PM. Come enjoy walking 4-5 miles through the beautiful Duke Farms at 1112 Dukes Parkway West, in Hillsborough NJ. Each Thursday's hike will be determined each day. There's trails that are paved, gravel, grassy and dirt. Leader will use any combination of these trails. Some hikes may include visit at the Orchid House. Please be ready to hike in front of visitor's center at 1 PM. Arrive at least 20 minutes earlier to watch video in visitor's center to learn about history of Duke Farms. I will be there ~12:30 PM in the Visitor's Center café with a cup of hot beverage. You can join me before the hike starts. Bring water, snack and weather appropriate clothes. Sometimes grassy trails can be wet. Wear waterproof hiking shoes. If there's light rain/showers, bring umbrella and we'll walk on paved trails. Heavy rain and thunderstorms cancel trip. Enough snow on ground may prompt a lovely snowshoe adventure. Questions?

I am an avid hiker and rails to trail cyclist. My newest interest as a leader is to provide an evening walk every few weeks in Central Jersey. Specifically in Somerset County.
