Sunday February 12, 2012 Copperas Mountain Moderate
We will hike on the W&N row (future section of the West Morris trail) until the crossing area for burnt meadow brook (this according to folk lore was used in recent times (1890-1950) for Green-Ponders to get to the RR to go shopping). We will then walk north and up on the Copperas Mt. hillside going past a defunct mine to the ridge line. We then walk the ridge line further north to a view point looking east towards the southern end of Wildcat ridge WMA, then we will walk south on the ridge line to a knob with a 360' view. This area is on the TC map. About 6–7 miles total.
Foul Weather or poor driving conditions cancels this hike.

If we have enough snow to cross country ski, this will be a ski/snowshoe trip from Long Valley to Califon and back. If there is no snow we will hike up into Schooley’s Mt for the winter views. In any event you can reward yourself with a beer at the micro-brewery afterwards. Foul Weather or poor driving conditions cancels this hike.
