Crew Name:Mountain Pinks Trail Crew
Project date:Saturday, March 17, 2012 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

We'll inspect, clip, and fix blazes along the north section of the Overlook Rock Trail from Overlook Rock to the Hewitt Butler Trail. This will be a LONG hike: we'll head up the yellow Manaticut Point Trail to the orange Lake Sonoma Trail to the white Overlook Rock Trail, which we'll take north.
RSVPs are helpful, especially in inclement weather. No RSVP's or bad weather will cancel the date.

Meet at 10am at Manaticut Point Trail head on Crescent Dr., Ringwood NJ. Take exit 55 from Rt. 287. Coming from the south, make a right at bottom of exit on to Ringwood Ave. Coming from the north, make a right at bottom of exit (Union Ave.), then make a left at the light on to Ringwood Ave. Follow Ringwood Ave. for about 2.8 miles. Look for the Delta gas station on the right, followed by the Skyline Diner on the right. Make the next left after the diner onto Westbrook Rd. and follow this to the Y and stay left (it's still Westbrook). Take the next right onto Magee Rd. about 1 mile. Take the left after the bridge onto Burnt Meadow Rd. and go up the hill about 0.8 mile to Crescent Dr. on the left. Crescent Drive is a loop so go to the 2nd uphill intersection with Burnt Meadow Rd. Meet 100 yards along Crescent Drive from the corner of Burnt Meadow Road. Or Google "191 Burnt Meadow Road" for nearby directions.
