Enjoy an autumn morning on a trail right around the corner…

Saturday, October 5th at 9am, join members of  the Roxbury Trails Committee on a hike at Black River Park, which is located at 1 Main Street, Succasunna, NJ.  The level trail follows the start of the Black River, and joins hilly trails in Randolph and Mine Hill.

Two hike options!  First is a mostly level hike approximately one hour long, and suitable for children.  Second option is to extend trail in Mine Hill on hilly, rocky terrain, for a two-hour hike.  Both hikes offer great views of Mine Hill Lake.  Bring a bottle of water.
