Stage 3

The number of scheduled organized hikes grows weekly. We are able to gather in groups of 100 outdoors however you must still register for hikes online.  This registration process replaces the waiver paper sign-in we used to do at the beginning of a hike.

When registering for the weekly hikes (Tuesday in Short Hills & Thursday in Jordan) you need only register once to cover the period of August 1 to October 31, 2020.  For all the other hikes, you will need to register each time you attend.

The hiking program is limited to members and their guests.  Guest of members can register using the member's number and their own name when signing up for a hike.

There will be no car pool hikes at this time.

Registering for a hike:
