Started from Pickell Park in whitehouse. A couple of challenging climbs. From the White Ridge trail you can get a glimpse of the reservoir. Pretty hike, fairly challenging in places.

Nice trail, well marked, with a pretty nice view this time of year (January). Only saw a few people. I followed blue trail to red on the ridge then back down on blue. It was a good workout for an old guy.

The trail is muddy in some places, especially at the beginning before the ascent up the mountain. This is a moderate-hard hike with several steep uphill and downhill sections. Definitely recommend taking a detour to go by the lake, it's beautiful and calm there.

A little muddy to start. It's moderate-hard, more so than Sourland Mtn. Beautiful day and nice view of the reservoir. The people you see are very friendly and it's not nearly as crowded as Sourland. I will definitely be coming back!

Nice trail. Well maintained. Good workout, steep extended uphills, with a good payoff in the views of the reservoir from the ridge.

I would say the hike in terms of a work out is a 5, but the hike and views are about a 3. Overall I would give a 4. Definitely steep inclines in a couple different places, the declines were difficult on the knees. Huge parking lot, we were the only hikers on a Sunday morning from 7am to 9am. This was worth a hike but won’t hurry back.

Probably better in the spring or summer, the fallen leaves made the mountain climb slick.

I think it should be rated hard but I enjoyed the challenge.

Beautiful autumn colors. Could see more of the reservoir from the ridge line than earlier in the year. Wish I had brought my poles for the uphill / downhill stretches. :)

Decent hike. I strongly recommend going down to the Reservoir because it was beautiful - very peaceful. This hike had a few inclines and declines. The main ascent towards the beginning was strenuous. Overall, I think the moderate rating is fitting.

It was a fine trail. Very high elevation and steep. Not that many views. Good for a good burn, but not really for beginners.
