Rock Lodge Freehike

This coming week-end the hills surrounding Rock Lodge Club will be ablaze with fall color. Come experience that with us on our Fall Foliage Hike on Saturday, October 9th. Weather prediction is SUNNY!

We will meet in front of the Bungalow at 11am.

This will be an easy hike lasting about 4 hours at a leisurely pace to do the full hike. (or take the shortened version) Our route will take us on some brand new trails over the mountain to the spring, and then through the valley to the "Indian Cave". The cave will be our picnic lunch stop. Bring a snack or sandwich for lunch.

In spite of lots of recent rain it has been a dry summer so - sorry - we *MAY* not be able to have a campfire.

Anyone who does not wish to continue hiking after lunch will be escorted back to Rock Lodge at that time. The rest of us will head out into the Rock Lodge Outback to experience some more new trails and to enjoy more of those brilliant golden and scarlet leaves.

Our hike is clothing optional (of course!). Some years most of us have hiked naked - other years it has been too cold. Come prepared for anything. Even if we hike naked, bring some sort of cover-up for when we are not on Rock Lodge property. In any event, sturdy shoes or boots are recommended. And, of course, bring water as well as your lunch.

After the hike, stick around and enjoy our lake, our sauna, our hot-tub, and the camaraderie that exists at Rock Lodge Club.

Please let us know in advance if you plan to join us or call 973-697-9721.

PJ and I certainly wish we could attend. We love freehiking when the fall colors arrive. One of our most memorable freehikes was the Rattle Snake Trail in northern Utah. Here is a link to photos of that freehike:

Has anyone else enjoyed a fall-colors freehike?
