2019 POWWW October Foliage Hike to Hog Pen

 

This past Saturday, POWWW lead a group of hikers from Old Beach Glen Road up through the historic Hog Pen area of Jonathan’s Woods. Brisk morning weather quickly gave way to a sunny and mild October day.  We came across Denville Scouts Troop 118’s annual camping trip in the Hog Pen (by permission from the park commission). Great to see so many people outdoors enjoying our local natural resources!

Join us for our next free public event on November 2nd at 8:30AM at the Cedar Lake Clubhouse in Denville. Coffee, bagels, and donuts will be served. POWWW’s Annual General Meeting will summarize our events and milestones from 2019 followed by a guided hike through Jonathan’s Woods. Hiking boots, jacket, water and snack are recommended for the hike.
