PRE PICNIC HIKE AT SMITHVILLE. Join us for a Pre-Picnic hike. We'll meet in the parking lot of the Smith Woods part of Historic Smithville Park, right where you'll park for the picnic. (E. Railroad Ave). We'll start here and end here. No mountains or rocks on this hike, but we'll navigate some treacherous stairs from the picnic area down to the creek and beyond.This will be about a 4-5 mile walk through the park woods.Meet in the parking lot for a 9:45 am shove off. That will bring us back right on time for the picnic. I'll be wearing a bright lime green shirt. If staying for the picnic, be sure to bring a dish to share. Leader: Doug H.
SHORT PADDLE ON THE RANCOCAS TO SMITH'S WOODS FOR THE CLUB PICNIC
This will be a short paddle upstream on the Rancocas from the normal takeout at the Smithville Ramp to Smith Wood's stop. Closed toe footwear must be worn. No shuttle required on this trip. You must bring wheels since there is an approximately 15 minute carry to the picnic area. A non-OCSJ option would be to paddle with group up to Smith's Wood and lock up your canoe/kayak and later paddle back to the put-in at Smithville ramp- If you decide to paddle back to the ramp you do so on your own-this is not part of the official trip.
Meet at 10:30 am at the Smithville Canoe ramp . 39°59'7.46"N , 74°45'1.03
