Great hike, one of my favorites.

Really enjoyed this hike! Waterfalls were gorgeous and the high point had amazing views. There was some confusion with the trail markers not being the most obvious but we adapted.

beautiful trail along creek, with beautiful nature around

So I haven’t been hiking in a long time but this was a good challenge for my first time back. I loved every moment of this trail! I would rate it more stars if I could ! The views are awesome and it gets rocky which is so much fun !

Good exercise. Good views. Got a little lost at some points. Overall good hike.

Pretty good hike. View up top is pretty awesome. Covered by trees the whole way so the sun isnt beating down on you. Multiple scenic views to look at as you go up to high point which makes for a nice spot to eat some snacks and catch up on hydration.

I went in October and the view was beautiful. The colors of the leaves were just changing and very vibrant. You can see the NYC skyline once you get to high point of the trail. The trail was very moderate and anyone could do this trail!

A little tough to follow the route without knowing you have to switch from HB (blue trail) to the very top, then take CH (yellow) down to PB west (white) back to HB (blue), but nice tough beautiful route. Looks like the pool under the falls would be a great refreshing swim in summer.

Went on 3/30 and could not cross with our small dogs because it was totally flooded from melted snow. Others could cross but the water was a river and about 6-12” deep... will return someday!

Nice hike. I wish that the all trails map showed the other adjoining trails

Very pretty. View of NYC skyline was cool. This hike is as good as any in the lower ADKs and one of my fave Jersey hikes.

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.

Great hike! Beautiful views!

Good hike. Great views. Many slippery rocks that require caution. Not technically difficult. .

Great trail with some awesome views. Like other reviewers, It was a bit confusing to get onto the right trail but in the end I followed the green blazes that start near the pool by the parking lot and then the blue blazes up to the Ridgeline. There were some steep sections but I don’t think it’s very strenuous. Great way to spend a few hours when you need a quick nature fix.

Love how you can get amazing views without a super strenuous hike. I did get lost though. There are so many trails at this park and a lot of them run parallel to eachother which doesnt help... luckily i had service and data to look up a map and track my location to get back on the right track. otherwise an awesome loop and good hike with nice views

Trail was awesome definitely one of the best in NJ...High Point makes the hike and is a feature point for the trip.

Wife and I had an amazing hike on this trail. It has a bunch of interesting things, including waterfalls, log crossings over streams, narrow paths, minor scrambling, and AMAZING views. Probably one of the best views on Wyanokie High Point that my wife and I have seen in NJ. Trail is moderate with lots of rocks and some decent elevation gain. We started at Otter Hole and followed Blue/Green to Wyanokie and then came back on White, which is a little easier and less steep. Trails are very well marked and cared for. We plan to come back in the fall to see the foliage.

Made a short loop going Northwest. Green to Red to Orange to yellow and back to green and out.

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.

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.

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.

Fire road in from Glenwilde Rd to waterfall an easy 2 miles back and forth with great views of the falls. Cross post brook and meet up with white blazed trail if desired.

good

This trail is incredibly scenic and fun. It's somewhat challenging but not difficult. We ate wild blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries along the entire trail. They are in large abundance.

little hard to find the trails first, but once you on it it is a great hike. Don't miss visit the mine on your way up!

Really great views and lots of interesting points along the trail! Highly recommend.

I loved every moment of this trip. I went alone but it was so grounding. I met wonderful people - the high point wasn't too crowded and I was able to do some yoga on the side of the cliff. It was wonderful !
