Begin at the main entrance and take the Halifax Trail around Scarlet Oak Pond. Here the park has an urban feel, paved roads and many dog walkers & joggers. The trail enters the woods, becomes more rugged & begins to climb towards Hawk Rock. Here you can clearly see all the way to NYC. The Halifax Trail leads down to Havemeyer Rd, and old mine rd, and meets a pipe line road. Follow this up over Drag Hill to the Cannonball Trail. This area became park property in the 70's & many houses & foundations can be found intact around Bear Swamp Lake. The Cannonball Trail leads you through the BSA's Camp Yaw Paw and to the Yellow trail. Climb and cross the pipeline road again to wonderful views of the Ramapo Valley below. Descend to meet the Bear Swamp Creek.

Didn’t take the planned route, but the blazes were clear all the way through. First part of the hike was pretty noisy from the highway, but in the middle I only saw one other person. Will come back and try and hit the part that I missed. Hike is strenuous in points, but not technically difficult. Had my 20 lbs dog with me. No scrambling required.

Hawks Rock is the best view in this trail. Steep at the beginning, followed yellow to silver to green to purple to White to White/people to blue to yellow. Moderate difficulty.

The difficulty mostly came from unclear trail marks. We lost track of the trail and had to backtrack for a couple of times even with the help of the App. Bug was not much of a problem (end of August). But it had some unpleasant smell in several spots along the trail. The kids camp was empty and from the app we noticed that the pond in the camp was heart-shaped, which was kinda romantic. Probably won’t be coming again.

THIS IS A 11 MILE TRAIL. Good for work out and practice. No breathtaking views and natural beauty.

This was a great hike. Climbing Drag hill was brutal. We ended up with a little less than 11 miles. My phone went dead by the 9th mile though. Some parts of the yellow trail were not marked and we had to wait and look around to find the markers but on the whole a great one. Just be prepared for the billions of bugs that will serenade you the whole way.

Beautiful spots but nowhere to just enjoy nature. Screaming babies, barking dogs, and teenagers blasting music by the lakes where there is no bugs, swarms of bugs in the woods and bug spray keeps them about 2 inches away from the skin. GPS point keeps jumping around making navigation with all the adjacent trails tricky. What a nightmare. Never again.

Overall it took me 9.3 miles. There were a lot of mini trails; it’s easy to create your own route. Lots of bugs flying rampant and buzzing in your ear. Poison ivy is everywhere! Wear long sleeves and long pants. I will do this trail again. Lots of nice views ponds, lakes and a water fall or two. Huge crowd over the July 4 weekend.

Relatively tough hike. I found the yellow trail to be a little troubling when it came to the directions. It seems like a perfect hike for Ido, Elliott, josh, and Evan though. I would recommend.

nice hike but like most got lost and ended hiking 12 miles. drag hill was exhausting in full sun but teddy of hike was moderate in the shade. Did it clock wise, trails around three camp were non existing. I was with my dog and didn't see any humans between first and last 30 minutes.

Nice hike. Well marked up until the bear swamp lake, at which point the directions on map seem to go off the trail and across a small mountain. I stuck to a trail that went around that mountain to the left. that part of the hike was the least interesting to me, and with a missed turn it ended up being just under an 11 mile hike for me. Looking back, I think you'd be better off taking the path to the right of the mountain where the directions go off the trail. All all it was a nice hike.

Awesome hike, a little strenuous at times but nothing crazy. No scrambling needed. Contrary to other reviews, I found it relatively easy to find the way. A couple wrong turns here and there but you quickly realize it. Minor inconvenience for a great hike. Beautiful views towards the top and varying fauna throughout make it consistently interesting. I brought my dog who has unlimited energy and he had an amazing time. Although it says dogs on leash, once I got past the first lake at the base I let him off and didn’t see a single person until I got back 9 miles later, no issues. I did pass a kids day camp (?) in the middle of the hike, was quite confused by that. The old castle ruins were very cool, but be careful of poison ivy. I will likely be getting a rash soon :/ The bugs can get pretty bad, I went right after a storm so they were probably worse than usual. Spider webs abound, just don’t hug the trees and stay aware and you won’t walk through too many. You pass by quite a few untouched lakes with nice display of wildlife. A couple were even nice enough for my dog and I to take a swim. Would definitely recommend

This beautiful trail was a bit confusing to maneuver, but was still enjoyable. The view of Bear Swamp Lake was picturesque, and the unmarked trails were fun to navigate. We saw various kinds of wildlife as well. Bug spray is needed.

Directions are not accurate at all. It would have you turn right into the Forrest and Bushwhack. Do yourself a favor and get the park map and follow the trails. Beware of the yellow trail. Very poorly marked. Everything else is marked well.

Once you break away from the main part with the lake and resevior It is pretty much all to yourself. Even through the camp we so no one. We started seeing people again towards the very end. Basically once you get away from the main part of the park, it's all yours. At least from my experience.
