(Return to) Norvin Green State Forest, Passaic County, NJ

I arrived at Norvin Green State Forest for the second week in a row. This time, I joined about 20 people with the Jewish Outdoors Club.

We followed the green trail southwest from the Weis Ecology Center for 0.4 miles, then continued on the blue trail for about 0.2 miles, which I had seen the week before.

We then followed some trails I hadn’t seen before. We turned east onto the yellow trail and followed that for 0.4 miles, at which point it turned southeast for another 0.3 miles. We then followed the red trail west for about 0.1 miles, and then took the white trail south for 1.4 miles.

This took us to Posts Brooks and back to trails I had seen the week before. We continued on the white trail as far as Chikahoki Falls, then backtracked and continued north on the yellow trail for 0.8 miles, then the blue trail 0.8 miles to Wyanokie High Point, and then continued on the blue trail 0.6 miles, and the green trail 0.4 miles back to the Weis Ecology Center. With the unplanned (but welcomed) detour to the Chikahoki Falls, this was close to a 6 mile hike. The temperature was in the 60s, and the hiking was much more comfortable than the week before.

As I had documented most of this area the week before, I am only presenting a few photos here.

I like the geometric patterns sometimes formed by rocks, fallen trees, etc.
