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 Weis Ecology Center and reservoir property. 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.

Spectacular views once you make the summit at Wyanokie. Trails easy to follow and and well maintained. Mix this in with Wyanokie high point trail and it makes for a better hike.

Trail head on Townshead Rd. Roomy mine easy to find take blue blaze trail to orange then orange to orange/yellow dot and youll walk right over it. Nice view pont along the way. Trail rated as easy but its more moderate IMO.

Beautiful views throughout the hike. We thought we were following the loop but ended up on the opposite side of the mountain, 8 miles from our car! Be more observant than us!!

Took a few minutes to find the start of the trail (followed the blue trail up and back). Amazing views from the top. Almost took the wrong blue trail back, but quickly sorted it out. I agree with the moderate level. Would love to go back with a drone and to also see the mines. The Natural pool looked interesting as well.

Nice, short hike. Lots of canopy to avoid the sun. Nice views. Keep an eye out for small frogs and snakes in the yellow, white trail.

Amazing views from many vistas all the way to the top. Green to blue and back and not too difficult. A very busy trail with hikers, never alone for too long.
