This trailhead is closed. The NY/NJ Trail Conference recommends parking at Pool Hollow Rd and taking the Hoeferlin trail to the Cannonball trail. I did the loop that includes going around Ramapo Lake. One thing that I did notice is that my location was always off from the downloaded track.

I tackled this trail on a sunny beautiful Sunday in June. Had the wife along, so slowed down a little bit. I tracked this loop longer than the 5+ miles indicated. Used this as a warmup, along with others, for my Machu Picchu & Inca Trail trek this August. Be aware that this trailmap doesn't indicate all of the different color trails you'll use. It's also a little off at times. The far end of the loop, by the peaks and castle, are the trickiest. But overall a good workout. Lots of dogs but not too crowded being a Sunday. Def worth a few hours of your time.

We hiked in from Back Beach Park on the red triangle to the white c in red circle trail. Celebrate having your own parade as you cross the overpass on 287 - make sure wave as everyone congratulates you on your hike well done! Bring plenty of water and bug spray !
