Geocache Description:

Hog Pen is a historic site adjacent to Jonathan's Woods and is a remarkable ridge line that can be viewed from Wildcat Ridge in Rockaway Twp.

Local histories describe a cave on its top formed by two huge rocks. To the west is another ridge forming a narrow ravine. Settlers built stone walls between the two that served as a sanctuary for themselves and their livestock during the Revolutionary War's Battle of Springfield in 1780. The land is also an integral part of a trail system which eventually will link Pyramid Mountain through Boonton Township to Wildcat Ridge.
We parked at the end of Hillcrest Drive N40 55.166'
W074 28.288'. It was a great walk down the blue trail to the yellow trail and on to the red trail. Feel free to pack in a lunch and enjoy the area and views for the day. Cache is a 4*6 plastic box.I have made this a 4.5 Terrain because of the final ascend to Cache. Please be careful. Left a Travel Dog Tag for FTF.
