Boonton Falls “Little Niagara” Hike

REGISTER
Canal Side Park, Boonton,

Here's an awesome hiking experience close to home! Come see (and hear) about one of New Jersey's amazing hidden treasures, the Boonton Falls. The Boonton area is rich in history so we'll discuss how the falls and the Rockaway River made Boonton an ideal location for the now abandoned New Jersey Iron Company in the 1830's. The Morris Canal transport system moved the manufactured nail rods and bar iron through the tri-state area. Come experience all this and more! We will meet at the Plane Street Parking Lot in Boonton. Use the following link coordinates: https://goo.gl/maps/5SDud5Dd8qomUdgs7. NOTE: On Saturday there will be the Boonton Farmers Market.
