January 1, 2018, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM @ New Jersey State Botanical Gardens
Join us on a self-guided, family-friendly hike in the Park woodlands surrounding the Botanical Garden. Weather permitting, you can easily climb to the Mt. Defiance overlook on the Halifax trail and return, or choose our alternate hike without a climb. This annual event is a joint project of Ringwood State Park staff and volunteers from the NJBG/Skylands Association. Wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothes, small children may need to be carried. This event is free.
Begin your hike at Skylands between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. at the Carriage House Visitor Center of the New Jersey State Botanical Garden. Map and hike directions will be provided at the start. Allow 90 minutes for the hike. Snow cancels; please call the State Park office at 973-962-7031 for more information.
First Day Hikes are held annually on New Year's Day at State parks all across the United States. They are designed to encourage visitors to enjoy their state parks year-round.
