This hike is so much fun! You cross over a bunch of little water canals, a bridge, walk across a dirt road and climb up some rocks. The view at the top is beautiful and totally worth completing the whole thing.

Nice view on top.

Loved the brook! Challenging enough for me
Short and local

2 stars might be more accurate because of the noise of 287 and planes and helicopters, and the surrounding suburban encroachment. That said, I gave 3 stars because I did have fun on the trails. Following the blue blaze from the TH offers a good workout up the mountain. Lunch on the lookout was nice. Do pay attention to the blazes, there are several spots that were a bit dodgy. Yellow to orange to red was the most quiet part of the hike.

Nice short hike, especially if you are local (I am) Lots of cars, but only ran into one person on the trail. Warning, if you are bringing your dog, make sure that you are UTD on tick treatment. Mine was, luckily, but still hate picking off those little buggers, even when they're dead.

Decent trails to hike. It offers some nice views of Manhattan and Northern NJ. Several loops and one-way hiking with around 8 miles or less.
