Steep up and gradual decent down to Musconetcong River. Beautiful vista valley views from top of Point Mountain.
it was fun... great overlook and a steep climb.
Nice little workout. The creek is especially beautiful as is the view on top of point Mountain. The trail is difficult only for the first half mile. I recommend the incline up to the mountain to start. Going down is hard on the knees if you start the blue trail first.
Overall stunning trail, lots to see out here.
This is an awesome, concise trail that gives you amazing views, meadows, and a scenic trail by the river. Only lasts 2 hours (with breaks) so would be perfect around sunset. Follow the Orange trail past the overlook and down the mountain until you enter the first meadow then follow the left trail and look for the blue trail
Definitely a moderate trail. Very enjoyable for a quick hike.
Absolutely beautiful view and I like the difficulty it adds at points for some variety.
A great trail, almost in my own backyard. Highly recommended! Take the orange trail up to a great view, then follow it until it intersects with the Blue trail.
Can take a quick hike up for amazing views!! Trail is moderate & rocky but fun!
Nice hike up the rocks. Trails are maintained and marked. Views at the peak are awesome and the walk down the other side is easier, especially if you have dogs.
the good: beautiful view, lots of variety in plant species, didn't meet a single person on the whole loop. Also, the ascent was not as bad as others have made it seem. took maybe a half hour to get to the top, where it was smooth sailing.
the bad: traffic noise for the beginning part of the trail, muddy in some spots.
the ugly: it's clear that the lookout point is polar among kids - LOTS of litter and graffiti. deeper into the trail, these traces disappeared.
I followed the orange up (ignoring the yellow) and the blue back. others mentioned corn fields - during my hike, they were more like meadows with lots of butterflies! Very pretty.
Personally I don't think there's much to see the whole way up, and half of the way up is pretty much straight up, the view is nice, but really not worth as much effort as you have to put in.
