Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead & sons and built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s, South Mountain Reservation is a 2100+ acre nature preserve in Millburn, New Jersey. While it may be just a 45-minute train ride from midtown Manhattan, South Mountain Reservation offers a level of peace and serenity more associated with rural landscapes than busy suburbs. We’ll explore it’s quiet, rolling hills, waterfalls and city views, then, time permitting, warm up at a local cafe or restaurant before returning to NYC. Bring a friend!
Hike is limited to 15 participants. Please sign up below. Girl Gotta Hike is a women’s group. While we appreciate all encouraging and supportive souls as friends and partners, this hike is just for the ladies.
Transportation details: We’ll be taking the 8:10AM New Jersey Transit Train out of Penn Station and will have you back in Manhattan by late afternoon. Please arrive at the station 15-20 minutes early so we can ride the train together. Pro tip: Use the NJTransit mobile app to purchase your tix — it’s super easy to use and no physical tickets to loose. If you will be arriving by carpool, please let me know.
Bad Weather Policy: Most hikes will go on rain, snow or shine. However, in the case of extreme weather such as lightning or high winds, I promise to keep you safe and re-schedule the hike for a later date.
