A beautiful trail that offers continuous babbling brooks and a brief glimpse of the iconic NJ AT. The first 1.5 miles of the trail is a sharp incline and takes a lot out of you, but the rest is relatively smooth sailing. Would recommend taking the loop counter clockwise to avoid the incline. Not a lot of majestic views but you get a few from time to time. Watch out for copperheads.
