This walk takes you on a journey through geological history, across sandstone and shale. We ramble through a deserted village and visit the Nature and Science Center, the first such exhibition in New Jersey. A special treat is passing through a grove of giant tulip trees, like New Jersey’s own redwoods.
This hike takes us through the tranquil bottomland of the
Watchungs, an oasis in an urban sea. These ridges sweep south
and then west through the New Jersey Piedmont. Cradled deep within their embrace is the Great Swamp. Here the Watchungs rise like a green, rocky wave above the surrounding sea of dense urban development.
