Gentle climb to top of Sourland Mountain. Beautiful views of woodlands and two large boulder fields. 6.1-mile loop of Ridge Trail and Roaring Brook Trail. Follow white square blazes until you reach Roaring Brook Trail (red circle blazes). Roaring Brook Trail is 2.1 miles before it rejoins the Ridge Trail and returns to the trailhead at the parking lot.

Trailhead parking fills up quickly on the weekends. PortaJohn at start of trail. Trails are very rocky and this inflamed my plantar fasciitis. Lots of people on the trail. Many different options/trails to choose from.

I loved it because it felt like a challenge with the rocks and small crevices.

Afternoon Saturday hike in August. Thank goodness for shade. Did part of Ridge Trail and took connecting trail at location #4 back to trail head. Mostly rocky and uphill first half. Some bouldering And scrambling. Nice hike and will return for full 5 mile hike. Hike was mostly covered on this trail.

Nice trail! Just make sure you put valuables in your trunk before parking. There's been a few car break-ins. Luckily I have dark tints.
