MONTVILLE, NJ -- Major snowstorms can be crazy, but they are great for the snowshoe enthusiast! Have you ever wanted to try snowshoeing or do you own a pair and want to explore somewhere new? Pyramid Mountain in Montville Township has just what you are looking for.
If conditions are favorable on Sunday, join us at the mountain for our first Snowshoe Sunday of the year. Enjoy a moderate, afternoon guided snowshoe trek with our Senior Naturalist Douglas. No experience is necessary and if you don’t have snowshoes – no problem, you can rent them from us too!
Please call 973-334-3130 to see if conditions are favorable at the mountain for snowshoeing and to register for our hike. The hike starts at 1 p.m. if you need snowshoes and 1:30 p.m. if you have your own. Cost is $5 per person for the treks, $15 per person for trek and snowshoe rental. This program is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
If you have your own shoes and would like to hit the trails on your own, come to Pyramid Mountain and walk one of our many trails. All trails at Pyramid Mountain will be closed on Friday, Feb. 10, due to a previously scheduled project, but Saturday you will be able to rent from 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Snowshoe rentals on Sunday will be available in the morning only and must be returned by noon. Otherwise, snowshoes are typically available to rent 7 days a week as long as conditions are favorable.
Please remember to call Pyramid Mountain on any day to see if conditions are favorable for snowshoeing. If you would like an email on Sunday morning regarding the Snowshoe program, please email Douglas at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you and hope to see you this weekend!
