Come help re-open the Smoke Rise New Pond Trail!
As Ken Bitz described the hike in the recent Smoke Rise Newsletter:
This will be a working hike to re-open the trail from West Shore Drive to New Pond. We will have a fun afternoon of cutting back growth along the trail, re-blazing the trail markers, and putting in place the trail head sign. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has designated a 300 foot area around New Pond to preserve its natural beauty.
We will meet at the trail head which is between 814 and 818 West Shore Drive at 1pm.
Boys Scouts, Girls Scouts and others needing and wanting to do community service, here is an opportunity! Simply contact Ken Bitz at email@example.com for details.

By the way, this is one of 2 hikes organized by the Lake and Environmental committee. The second is scheduled for May 16th. I'll write about that one separately.
