About the event
Join the Musconetcong Watershed Association for a hike at Point Mountain in Lebanon Township on Saturday, November 18th, at 9:00a.m.
There will be two groups taking paths of varying difficulty, both of which lead to the top of Point Mountain, offering expansive views of the Musconetcong River Valley:
-One group will be hiking a 3-mile loop from the Musconetcong River up to the top of Point Mountain, then down the mountain before finishing up along the river. On this hike, the trip up is very steep and rocky; although it's relatively short, if you are not an avid hiker, this will be a strenuous stretch of terrain! -The second group will hike in the opposite direction, starting along the river and taking the longer route up to the top of Point Mountain and returning on the same path. This will be a longer hike in terms of distance (~5 miles), but avoids the very steep section. Note: this hike will still have a rocky dirt path at times and elevation change to get to the top of the mountain.
Be sure to bring some water and appropriate sneakers for hiking on steep, uneven, rocky terrain. The temperature will likely vary from the beginning to end of our hike, so bring layers to be ready for the change.
We will be meeting at the small parking lot on Point Mountain Rd., although overflow parking is also available along the road. See below for a link to the meeting spot: https://maps.app.goo.gl/pJfMRQz5hQU3QfTDA
