Take I287 south to exit 45 for route 202 to main st. Make a right on Boonton Ave to the visitor cent 0.7 miles north of Taylortown road.
it was a great trail with many scenic views of NY State and many rock formations. Somewhat challenging but not impossible.
Best hike earlier then I thought & great views
Some interesting rock formations and a couple of decent views. Lots of rocks on the trail. Bushwacking is discouraged here.
This is a pretty nice trail that quickly leaves the large (apx 25 cars) parking lot behind and begins a short climb along the blue trail. I stayed on blue until it intersected with the white trail, then took that until it looped back and rejoined blue.
There are a couple of short but fun climbs, and a few very short rock ledges (Lucy's Overlook). Personally, I prefer more secluded trails but It's a pretty area with lots of dog walkers and families that's worth giving a try. While you're there, be sure to check out the visitor center.
Clearly marked trails, diverse terrain, nice views, perfect length...I highly recommend this trail. Some steep inclines but very fun to do.
The 5+ mile loop is a great diverse hike. Lots of elevation changes, vistas, rock formations, terrain and color changes. Several options to extend or alter your route along the way.
