Enjoy an easy walk or bike ride at your own pace with your young children through the Hilltop Reservation—the newest park in Essex County—on Saturday, May 14, starting at 10 a.m. The self paced tour is on a marked route, approximately 1.5 miles long on pavement and gravel roadways. Families with small children should allow about an hour for a leisurely ride and exploring. Bikes with training wheels are welcome. Start riding any time after 9:45 a.m. and before 11:30 a.m.
Park in the lot behind the sports field on Mountain Avenue in North Caldwell (Courter Lane entrance to the Hilltop Reservation). The clearly marked route starts directly from this parking lot.
Visit www.HilltopConservancy.org for a detailed map of your reservation and its location.
Don’t bring money. The ride, beautiful scenery and memories are free. Do bring helmets, a camera and perhaps some drinks and snacks for your children and maybe allow additional time to explore parts of the meadow and woodlands.
Organized by the Hilltop Conservancy to introduce a safe cycling area to families.
