Mountain Way Park, Parsippany, NJ

Route 287 to Route 10 West, continue on Route 10 W until the jughandle exit for South Powder Mill Road (DePasquale Hair Salon is in the Shopping Center on S. Powder Mill). Continue on S. Powdermill up the hill and back down until you come to a T intersection. Make the Left onto Mountain Way and Mountain Way Park will be approx. 1/4 mile on your Right.

The Mountain Way Trail - 0.90 mile Loop

Begin your adventure by following the white trail markers until you come to a wooden sign at the beginning of the loop. Choose the trail to your right. Continue along, be careful as the trail can become muddy and keep your balance along the stepping stones further down on the trail.

Continue to follow the white trail and cross over another trail remaining on the white trail as it will begin its gradual climb. The trail bears to the left as you continue up the mountain.

The trail brings you to a large nesting of boulders and bedrock which are believed to have been deposited by glaciers. Continue to climb up onto the bed of boulders and somewhere within this bed lies your treasure. (It might be advisable to use a stick when poking around the crevices.)

Please return box to it's original location and continue along the white trail. Look for two old miners' exploration pits and begin your descent. Watch your step coming down the mountain as there are some loose rocks.

The white trail will bring you back to the park. Stay and enjoy the playground or the gazebo before embarking on your next adventure.
