The undisturbed forest and rugged terrain of Norvin Green offers sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. Part of the Wyanokie Wilderness Area, the forest is near Wanaque Reservoir and is home to an extensive trail system built from old logging roads. Several trails link up with public and private facilities, including the Weis Ecology Center and reservoir property. The existing trails, either old forest roads or new trails constructed by volunteers, are perfect for nature walks and other outdoor classroom activities. With hills ranging from 400 to 1,300 feet in elevation, Norvin Green provides the avid hiker with scenic vistas, including the New York skyline, Burnt Meadow Brook and Lake Sonoma. The property is accessible by foot only.

Awesome hike. barely saw anyone. Can get a distant view of the NYC skyline on a clear day. Waterfalls, elevation, rock scrambles.. Saw some turkeys. Loved this hike, would definitely do it again.

It's confusing for sure but easy to figure out. Just look for the markers, I had never hiked this trail before and wound up doing one of the more difficult blue trail which they should post what markers mean what and their difficulties in their lots. Either way it was a nice workout hike up the mountain with a nice view.
