For the nature lovers…

Here’s a list of upcoming nearby events organized by the Palisades Interstate Park. Some hiking, an informative slide show, and a field trip. For those that think a “hike” involves walking more than a few blocks, then these may not be your cup of tea.

“Cape Fly Away”

The hike will cover about 3 miles round-trip distance in about 2 hours over moderate trails with some slopes. This is a free program, open to all, with no advance registration required. The hike will be held “drizzle or shine”; heavy or steady rain, or icy trail conditions, will cancel. To confirm on the morning of the hike if conditions seem questionable: 201 768-1360 ext. 108.

Cool – I wonder if they’d allow me to build a cabin on that little island with the trees…

There is another reservoir a little bit north of this one in Union City … Very similar, except it is much cleaner around the edges..


Midnight, in the spring, summer and fall they have stuff to do. The events link on the site is not updated at the moment bur come spring time it will be.
It’s a nice little hidden treasure in Hudson County.

Yeah, I noticed that large pond when looking at Hoboken through Google’s Earth prog. On the map, it looked like it was closed off. Can you actually walk the reservoir?


This is pretty cool, just five minutes up the hill in the heights. It’s a block away from where my wife grew up. Maybe 411 can post a picture…
