I'm liking the. Mahlon Dickerson reserve in Jefferson. It's tame for what we're used to of ramapo/ring wood but nonetheless very pretty, awesome scenic views and some climbs. You can run all the way to split rock area where wildcat romp takes place...or in that vicinity.
Jason just gave me flashback chills as I to spent a great part of my early years on the AT at hawk. I believe I know every rock and root by name in my backyard at Watchung and it is really where I became a trail runner so, she gets the prize.
