FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. -- In memory of local historian Jim Longo, Jim Wright of Allendale and the Fyke Nature Association, is leading a free walk Saturday, Oct. 29 to High Mountain's historic Franklin Clove.

Franklin Clove is a ravine where Lenape Native Americans wintered, centuries ago.

"Wright will talk a little about the history and geology of this amazing spot, including nearby ancient rock shelters and Buttermilk Falls," organizers note. "You need to have excellent balance and sturdy hiking shoes to participate; the trail is rocky and footing can be difficult."

Because there is limited parking, the walk can only accommodate 15 people, and RSVPs are required. E-mail Wright at celeryfarm@gmail.com for more details and parking location.

The walk already has filled up, but Wright is compiling a waitlist, in case people cancel.

The walk will begin at 10 a.m. The rain date is 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 30.

For more information about upcoming trips, keep an eye on the Fyke Nature Association's website.
