July 24 Watchung Mountain Hidden Streams Hike

Registration is now open for the LRWP’s first “Watershed Highlights and Hidden Streams” walking tour of 2021!

Join us 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 kick off from the northwest end of The Loop in the Watchung Reservation with a walk down to Blue Brook and Lake Surprise as we talk about the long journey to the Raritan.

Estimated 4 miles of walking.

Registration required. Please check our website for updates, especially in the case of inclement weather.

Please navigate to the Watchung Reservation parking lot at Sky Top Drive Scotch Plains, NJ 07076
