I used to go to William Paterson so knowing where the real start of the trails are was in my favor. I mostly hiked the white trail which unexpectedly turned into the orange trail which then unexpectedly ended in a neighborhood. I walked a couple feet to start on the yellow trail(which i found easily) but the remainder of the yellow trail was not well marked. I ended up losing the yellow trail quickly and instead picked up the white trail again. I was searching for the blue trail which according to where it would be on the map, was not marked at all. I hiked back to the red trail via the white and coming back it was MUCH more difficult to follow. Many of the marked trees are not marked on both sides, hence the difficult following it back. Be prepared for tons of loose rocks and small water crossings.
