MILLBURN, NJ - On the heels of the Millburn Township Committee proclaiming June "Down The Block Month" the local non-profit announced an education hike and guided tour of the South Mountain Reservation.

The hike on June 25, at 11:00 am will be guided by Cheryl Faine, a longtime resident with a Masters in Exercise Physiology, ACSM and cancer recovery certifications and owner of Cheryl Faine Fitness.

Armed with our maps provided by down the block, Cheryl will help participants stretch and tone, while she provides a bit of history and surprises about the reservation.  Hikers should meet at the Locust Grove parking area, directly across from the Millburn train station.
