Point Mountain is an interesting hiking area with many different topographies depending on the trail you take, This one hits all of the highlights - fields, woods, climbs, views as well as a river walk. The central section of the park is the most heavily used, but the north and south sections have some great trails. The north section has a 1000 foot mountain that is actually higher than Point Mountain, but due to it being heavily wooded there are no views. It is a nice climb to offset the rocky climb to Point Mountain.

Level is all relative but I think the route I took would be more moderate than easy. I started off in a pasture following Orange. Then I followed blue. Then back to Orange. Found myself scrambling up the mountain. Beautiful views. The climb up was actually fun. I bet it's absolutely stunning when the leaves are in full color.

Alittle bit of everything!

Great hike all things we love beautiful overlook then down along river

This is a great little hike for Jersey locals that don't have the time to drive to mountains further away. Its a relatively easy hike so its great for beginners especially if you want to build yourself up for longer and steeper hikes in the future! The view is beautiful in the Fall! If you go after it rains, parts of the loop can get soggy and muddy near these small streams so be prepared with proper foot attire. Parking is scarce, so go early in the morning on the weekend. GPS and a virtual hike of this trail is available on my youtube channel! Hope this helps! https://youtu.be/s3F_i9_nNE8

When you've got to get a 'quickie' in or just want to step away for a few hours without a haul to get to the hike Point Mountain is a local fav. Excellent outcrops and well-marked.
