The undisturbed forest and rugged terrain of Norvin Green offers sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. Part of the Wyanokie Wilderness Area, the forest is near Wanaque Reservoir and is home to an extensive trail system built from old logging roads. Several trails link up with public and private facilities, including the The New Weis Center. The existing trails, either old forest roads or new trails constructed by volunteers, are perfect for nature walks and other outdoor classroom activities. With hills ranging from 400 to 1,300 feet in elevation, Norvin Green provides the avid hiker with scenic vistas, including the New York skyline, Burnt Meadow Brook and Lake Sonoma. The property is accessible by foot only. It is free to hike here, however a $5 donation is greatly appreciated.

The trail markers were a bit confusing, which several other hikers we encountered mentioned as well. Overall though, it was a great hike. A variety of scenery, as well as scrambles, and some more challenging spots. Definitely make your way up to Hi Point. The views were amazing! I would definitely hike here again.

This trail is very close to my house and it is absolutely beautiful. Short hike, challenging enough at a fast pace to get a great workout. I rarely see anyone on the trail. The terrain is beautiful and there is a decent view at the top. Great for kids too.

This trail was very beautiful and peaceful. The day we went only met up with an occasional fellow hiker. I agree it was somewhat difficult for us. A lot of steep climbs sometimes over great slabs of granite. I would say hiking shoes rather than sneakers is a must.

Great exercise for an afternoon. Climbs and views. Trekking poles helped my short legs. Nothing too strenuous. Beautiful views and interesting features.

Study the map at the park first and find the map at the kiosk showing the multiple trails and color codes for their blazes. The loop shown here is a small part of what you will see in the total network of trails. Look to match the shape of this loop with the trails on the right side of the map.

I relied on the GPS to stay on the loop shown here, but got off the intended trail and lost the yellow/white blazes near the end. Thought we were on the trail but ended up in someone’s backyard. It was easy to get to the street at that point and you were back at the parking lot. The network of orange, yellow-white, and red-white trails near the end is confusing, many parallel and shared trails, some making small loops. Take a photo at the kiosk or have a map to keep track of your route in this section.
