Echo Lake East

Echo Lake East, Pequannock Watershed (9/16/2007)

This is half of hike #12 ("Echo Lake East Through Hike") from the book Hiking the Jersey Highlands (1st edition). The hike described in that book requires two cars. We did half the hike, plus additionally hiked further north on the white trail until it turned sharply east away from the lake.
