Date: Saturday, July 26 Time: 9:00 AM Place: Holmdel Park, 44 Longstreet Road, Holmdel NJ 07733 Meet at: Longstreet Farm / Pond View parking lot Event: 4-6 mile hike (duration will depend upon temperature/humidity extremes) Holmdel Park is a 565 acre site that contains historic Longstreet Farm as well as the David C. Shaw Aboretum. Walking trails wind through the shady woods and rolling hills. The rolling terrain will challenge some hikers. We’ll begin by hiking 3-4 miles through largely shaded forest paths. After a lunch break we’ll decide, depending upon climate conditions, whether to hike another 2 miles or, if heat and humidity are extreme, we can instead tour the Aboretum. This hike is being offered in conjunction with Sundance Outdoor Adventure Society.
