UNION COUNTY—Washington Rock and Hemlock Falls await the autumn hiker interested in touring South Mountain Reservation Oct. 17 at 9:30 am.
“We’ll hike at a speedy pace for 3+ miles on both well-trodden and winding paths to the overlook,” said Jim Davoust, the Sierra Club trailblazer who also suggested hiking boots to avoid sore feet.
Hikers should bring a lunch and adequate water.
The hike will be cancelled in the event of rain, but well-behaved dogs are invited to join in.
