Pompton Lake is located near Wayne, New Jersey and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for canoeing and is accessible from April until October.
Growing up in Oakland NJ, I've canoed, swam, swung over, you name it, in the Ramapo River many times, and it has always been an adventure.. A great place to start is at the W. Oakland Avenue bridge. there used to be a bait/canoe rental place there, I'm not sure what's there now.. The river has a nice flow past some of the most beautiful scenery that Oakland has. This takes you all the way down to Pompton Lake, right down to the top of the falls. I look forward to doing this trip again..it's an easy fun trip to take with friends.
