For hike 36 my wife and I headed to the Duke Farms Historic Estate in Hillsborough, NJ. If you live in the area you should definitely spend a day exploring this unreal piece of property by foot or by bike – they’ve got a sweet Farmer’s Market on Thursday nights too!
I’m trying to catch up on a bunch of hikes this month which means finding short hikes close enough to home that I can complete them after work while I still have daylight. I’ve been through sections of six mile run on my bike before but this was my first time hiking there.
After much searching, I finally spotted this 4 door Sport model over the weekend. Hyper Green reminds me of a muted Gecko with more of a yellow element to it – I dig it, but still like Tank the most among the three available greens right now.
I was nearly complete with Hike 21 of my 52 Hike Challenge, hiking along the ridge in Jenny Jump State Park, when I saw something shiny in the rocks along the side of the trail.
The 2017 Jeeps haven’t been added to Jeep’s website yet, but vehicles are already hitting dealer lots – spotted this white Grand Cherokee Trailhawk today and can confirm that the starting price for the new Jeep is $42,995 before options and destination fee.
The Cedar Ridge Preserve was one of the many spots I found during everyday driving – I’ve had a keen eye for trailhead signs since starting my 52 Hike Challenge and spotted the Cedar Ridge parking area while heading to a friend’s house.
Mojo and I headed up to Black River Park to check out Cooper Mill for hike 29 of my 52 Hike Challenge! I first spotted the mill on my way home from Hacklebarney State Park and was excited to finally get back to check it out.
I passed the trail head for Jacob’s Creek on my way home from Hike 15 at Ted Stiles Preserve and noted the location for a future hike. I had done minimal research on the area, and only knew that the hike would be a relatively short out and back along the creek.
I was planning on hunting for Hidden Falls in the Delaware Water Gap for hike 27 of my 52 Hike Challenge, but decided last minute that getting lost in an area that I knew I’d have no cell service on one of the hottest days of the summer might not be a great idea –…
Hike 26 marks the halfway point of my 52 hike challenge – and even though I’m still about 7 hikes behind where I should be, it has renewed my confidence that I’ll finish by November 27, 2016.
The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is the crown jewel of NJ hiking. Whenever anyone asks me what it’s like to explore the backwoods of NJ, I send them photos from my hikes on Mt. Tammany and the Dunnfield Creek Natural Area. When Adam (ThatOutdoorGuy) messaged me on twitter to see if I would…
I headed to Cushetunk Mountain Preserve for Hike 24 – The trails were pretty well marked, but the fact that that area crosses from a town park into a county park all while bordering a state park made reliable maps hard to come by.
I have a not so secret love for the Jeep Patriot – the capability may not be anywhere near that of the old XJ Cherokees, but the styling is reminiscent of the classic boxy Jeeps. The SE package is one of the best bang for your buck deals that Jeep has offered in a while,…
The 52 Hike Challenge has been a bit more challenging than I had originally thought. As I write this I’m about 8 hikes behind where I should be at this point and am starting to get nervous about being able to catch up. I’m determined to meet my deadline, but will need to really kick…
I have a long list of potential hikes that I pick from each week when planning destinations for my 52 Hike Challenge. Turkey Mountain wasn’t actually on my list, but after looking back on the map it shares with Pyramid Mountain (hike 17) I decided to check it out for number 22.
