Mt. Olive's Turkey Brook Park Hike - MCPC

Mt. Olive's Turkey Brook Park Hike - MCPC
We had a terrific hike through Mt. Olive's Turkey Brook Park on August 7th. Here are highlights of the hike I described in a MCPC Hike 8/7/10: Turkey Brook Park, Mt. Olive, NJ.

42 hikers participated in the August hike at Mt Olive’s Turkey Brook Park. As Tom Edmunds, MCPC organizer extraordinaire, details:

"This was a wonderful hike and we thank Laura Szwak from NJ Conservation, Janice Bunce-Escobar from the local girl scout troop and Mt Olive Mayor Dave Scapicchio for joining and leading the hike."

Thank you, Phil Bishop and Barb Page, for the photos!

We started out parking our cars at our hike ending point. From there, we carpooled to the Mt. Olive high school and hiked through some beautiful areas. Our fearless trio is pictured above by a magical pond - part of the pristine Mt. Olive waterways.  We then hiked upward through a variety of terrains.

Total distance: 3.3 miles

Most extraordinary is that our trail had been blazed by the local girl scout troup. Talk about fierce determination and impressive local dedication. They did a beautiful job!

I tracked our trail on Everytrail:

Thank you, Laura and Janice for an outstanding trail!  Thanks, Tom, Janet and Russ, for another unbelievable hike!  We loved it.
