July 24 Watchung Mountain “Hidden Streams” Hike
July 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Registration is now open for the LRWP’s first “Watershed Highlights and Hidden Streams” walking tour of 2021!
Join us on Saturday July 24, 10-noon as we visit one of the northernmost areas of the Lower Raritan Watershed and explore the Watchung Reservation’s Blue Brook and Lake Surprise.
The walk, guided by our own David Tulloch, will help our hikers begin to discover this massive Olmsted Brothers-designed park. With help from a few maps, Dr. Tulloch will talk about the context of the park within the watershed as well as the context of this culturally-significant historic landscape within the surrounding communities of Union County.
We will be meeting in the Watchung Reservation at the area called The Loop (Some park signs point towards the Loop and its playground). At 10am our group will depart on foot from the building (with bathrooms) shown with the red marker below (40.687, -74.374).
Estimated 4 miles of walking.
Registration required. Please check the LRWP website for updates, especially in the case of inclement weather.
The Watchung Reservation is in Scotch Plains, NJ 07076
