Hike: Where the Wild Things Are - for Young Professionals
Deer and rabbit and fawn, oh my! This twilight hike will likely feature friendly furry critters that tend to come out as the sun goes down. But regardless of whether we spot any wild things there will be beautiful woodlands, ponds, and meadows to gaze upon. After we have all earned our happy hour we will head over to a local bar for dinner and drinks.
~ The first person to spot a deer and point it out to David will earn a complimentary future hike ~
This easy hike is good for beginners!
4.5 miles in 2 hours at an easy pace.
As with all hikes you must be in reasonable athletic shape.

If the group size is larger than 10, we are going to look for a volunteer to act as a sweeper. Sweepers will walk at the end of the hike line and will make sure the group stays together.
David will be leading this hike. David will not be waiting for late people. In fairness to those who arrive on time, the hike will start on time.
What to bring:
Hiking boots are strongly recommended and 2 liters of water is required. Hiking boots will help keep the mud out of your feet when hiking as the trail may have a few wet spots.
Heavy precipitation and/or high temps will cancel this hike. Please check your inbox for updates and the NJYP.org calendar. Tickets will be refunded.
Take 287 North or South to exit 30A. Follow North Maple Ave (it will become South Maple Ave) for approx 2.4 -2.6 miles and make a left onto Lord Stirling Rd. Follow that for about 1 mile and the park will be on the left.
Do not use the entrance on South Maple Ave, as those are only the stables.
