Best hike we’ve done in awhile. Don’t just do the map loop above. If you do you’ll miss the views. Make sure to get on the Highpoint Trail so you can see NYC and some other 360 degree amazing views. Didn’t see any other hikers yesterday. Also no one was collecting $10.

Nice views at the top and you can see Manhattan. A couple spots were not marked great but all in all it was easy to follow. We saw a black snake, probably 5 feet long. Scared the

Hiked the pink loop off the red on white blazed trail off Snake Den Rd west. 2 good view points toward the east with views of NYC.

Good for a NJ trail, with a good view at the top. Only one tricky part, rest is very easy. Scenery constantly changes, which is nice. Rating should change to moderate.

Also went in April and didn't have to pay an entry fee. Not sure if that's always the case
