Schooley's Mountain Boulder Gorge Loop Trail is a 2.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Long Valley, New Jersey that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
We did not do the falls, rather using this map parked in lot on Fairview and hiked up to see the view. It was beautiful and although difficult in some spots for my younger son (9), a fun, short hike. Took us about an hour.
Very nice hike.
Good trail, pretty well marked. Had a great day hiking!
It was a bit boring for me, but next time I will do all the trails within the trail system and I'm sure it will be better. Great for kids.
Great scenes and a nice view of the town from 900 feet up. Most of the trails are clearly labeled and have a fun mix of rocky and flat terrain.
Different portions of this trail are very different. The section along the stream is quite rocky and involves some scrambles over rocks and fallen trees. It basically follows the white on the hill or the blue along the stream. The other half follows the yellow grand loop trail and the beeline trail. That portion is generally wider, less steep, and less rocky.
This park has a lot to offer for anybody. Has waterfalls, a lake, meadows with beautiful flowers, and an awesome view to top it off. The trails are kind of hard to follow but if you follow the colored marks on the trees then you will be fine. Don't take the highland cut if you want to see the view, follow the grand loop until you hit the sign for "overlook"
Had a great day hiking with my kids. The trails were well marked, l will definitely go back!
Slippery after the rains. Good for a quick early morning hike in summer. Will come back here more as its a good warm up hike prior to longer hikes.
