Quiet trail and good exercise for a half day hiking.
The view fir Greenwood lake is wonderful.
If you want to save time, start from Lakeside.

Charming and a little bit challenging - be prepared and use NYNJ Trail Conference pdf map 116 for easiest navigation :)

Nice trail you need to pay attention so you catch all the turns but had a great time launch by the lake

The rock looks like marble. Not many views, just a small lake. I don't quite like the long downhill, which hurts my feet, especially my toe so much that the hurts last more than 1 week....
