    Sourlands Trail Day Sat 3/21 9am

    The Somerset County JORBA chapter is building a new trail at the Sourlands Preserve that will connect Roaring Rocks with the gas pipeline. This area is primo Sourlands territory with plenty of rock features to incorporate into the trail. We will be meeting at the parking lot on East Mountain Road at 9am on 3/21. Come and help out if you can. Mucho gracias.

    Great news.. That place has so much potential and really needs trails. Sorry I am only part time in Jersey, otherwise the cause is noble enough to drag me butt out of bed at 9.00.

    try going in a clockwise loop, its generally a bit more user-friendly. the blue trail is pretty difficult to go up, and better built for going down. so when if you enter from the parking lot behind the kiosk, when the trail split forks, go left onto the boardwalk/bridge and continue to follow that trail past the fireroad and all the way up to the top.

    that said... the rocky trails are the rideable trails. its just that technical there.
