Trail Building Session at Schooleys 6/7
Riders and hikers, the Morris Trails Partnership Trail Crew is holding a bonus trail building session at Schooley's Mountain park in Long Valley this Saturday, 6/7. Meet at the Upper (northern) parking lot off the entrance at East Springtown Road at 9:00 AM.
Some of you may recall that Schooley's Mtn was re-opened to multi-use a few years ago, and one of the Partnership's projects with Morris County Park Commission is to build a sustainable connector from the rugged trails on top of the mountain down to the Columbia rail trail. The proposed trail was scoped and flagged a few years ago at National Trails Day. Now it's time to get working on it. Hope you can make it!
Note, in case rain is threatening, call MTP at 973 829-8256 after 7:00 AM. Trail date is ON unless the greeting says otherwise.

Was the trail started? I went to schooleys mountain today and couldn't find the trail. Can you tell me how to get to it from the main gate?
Memory is foggy but..
...I have only been to SChooley's a couple of times, but when we flagged the route two years ago, it was located as follows:
Main gate into park...follow access road until you make a right turn at the maintenance building (on your right). Go to the last parking lot, and head toward the left-most section of the lot (away from the pavillion building). Trail started there, and twisted its way down the mountain to the Columbia Rail Trail. I doubt it's finished...it's a very long winding trail, with tons of rock sections that require heavy work. However, you should still see the orange flag/ties on the trees.
Thanks. This should really help.
