It was a beautiful November day to hike. We started closer to the trail head and bypassed the residential Cul-de-sac., parking in the side of the road. The blue blaze Wound through mountain Laurel bushes. On the peak of walnut mountain it became confusing due to many winding bike trailed. We found ourselves Veering off the trail a few times and following the bike trail and not the blue blaze. Thank God for good weather and a good hiking buddy.

Access to the trail through Sunnybrook State Park. One must cross busy Newfield Road to get a spur trail that leads to the marked trail. The trailhead as mapped in the app basically starts in a residential area at a cul-de-sac and is not recommended. I’m deducting two stars because of that. The wooded section of the trail is pretty and I enjoyed the diversity of habitat types. In my opinion, the trail should be re-mapped so that doesn’t include any of the residential sections.

You can’t start this trail as shown on the map, because the map shows the trail starting at someone’s private residence which is complete and utter bullshit. Instead most people start at Sunny Brook State Park, which is what I did or I guess you could start at Burr Pond State Park.

Some parts of trail well marked, some not. No good views at the top, but some parts of the trail are really pretty and I liked how lightly trafficked the trails were as opposed to sunny brook a few miles away which was packed.

First to Review

I started at the State Park and continued up the John Muir trail (trailhead is next to bridge marked by a vacant sign and pipe handrail) It is a light blue blazed trail that is fairly well maintained. It’s a good workout with a gain of almost 500 feet to the top. There are no views to speak of, and very buggy when I went, but overall a decent quick workout.
