(visited by Andrew Berman, Holly and Lindsay)

14-Jan-2012 -- Accompanied by my friends Holly (who lives 4 miles from the confluence) and Lindsay, we first approached the confluence point from the west and were blocked by a river (I think the Hackensack). Unprepared to ford the river, we got back in the car and approached it from the east. We drove to the end of Forest Ave and got permission from a homeowner to walk across their backyard. We leapt across some streams and walked across others via downed tree trunks. Lindsay temporarily lost a shoe to some mud after one stream jump. We finally found the confluence point beside a small, frozen pond. The surroundings are trees and uneven ground. I'd like to go back in the summer where there are leaves on the trees.
