First Day Hike in the Mapleton Preserve

Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands invites everyone to a First Day Hike in the Mapleton Preserve on Monday, January 1, 2018, from noon until 2 pm. For anyone who made a resolution to walk more, this is a great opportunity to start the new year off on the right foot with an easy 1.5 mile loop hike through the Mapleton Preserve. (The walk may be shortened if the weather demands it.)

The walk will start at the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park Headquarters at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston. Hot chocolate and hot cider will be served afterward. Dress for the weather, which may include high winds, so be sure to cover your ears, neck, head and hands. The walk is free and all are welcome.  For more information, call 609-683-0483.
