>Hi All,
>If you haven't been here yet, I suggest you visit this unique area.
>Split Rock is a large body of water located near the border of Passaic & Morris Counties in Marcella, NJ.
>The length of the lake is about 4 miles. Wonderful rock formations and numerous islands reminiscent of coastal Maine, make this a prime paddling area. One of my many favorites. The drive up is also very senic and pleasant. Oh ... and there's no e-coli, power boats or barges in the water so it's very safe!  Great swim spots.
>Bring lunch & water.
>Meet at 9:00 AM & launch  at 10:00.
>Directions from the Chimpanzee Bridge: ( $5 one way toll ) and buy your gas in NJ - it's fifty cents/gal. cheaper & you don't pump it!
