Alice Oldford

Welcome Back To The Clinton Book Shop


Are you eager to embrace the outdoors and what Mother Nature has to offer, get your family involved or perhaps learn some local history? You can find what you need in Hunterdon and the surrounding Counties. Check out Taylor Steelworkers Historic Greenway in High Bridge, a wonderful source of history dating to the Revolutionary War. For an environmental lesson, try Merrill Creek Reservoir in Washington Township, Warren County. Enjoy a family picnic in the shade along the Black River at Hacklebarney State Park, Chester Township, Morris County. Beauty and serenity are available right here in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the United States. I hope this book will encourage you to explore the possibilities.

Alice Oldford has been a trail lover since childhood when riding her horse on the well-developed trails of the Watchung Reservation in Union County was a treat. Later when there was no longer a steed at hand, her own feet served her well. Then she learned about the benefits of exercise and endorphins and just kept walking. Her first book, You Can Get There from Here -- Hiking Hunterdon County Trails, in collaboration with Sue Dziamara, grew from their walking and exploring in Hunterdon County and wishing to share the wealth. This book broadens the quest.
