Mixed bag out there today: some snowy bits, some icy bits, boggy bits and even some super clear spots (the rock scrambles were 95% clear).

HikingGreat!IcyRockySnow

Pretty snowy hike, with a decent amount of variable terrain. Inclines aren’t bad, but because of the snow and icy rocks, I recommend wearing good boots with traction (or bring microspikes). Good views of a nearby frozen lake, boulders, and wide expansive fields. Overall pretty great hike! We started at the Pyramid Parking lot, so different trailhead than the map here, and we clocked at 4.9 miles.

Great short walk with some rock scramble to the Tripod Rock. Went after rain so a bit muddy but not that many people so a plus! Parking usually crazy out there.

Not interesting, but not boring. Not challenging, but not easy. Not deep in nature, but not next to a highway. Basically your run-of-the-mill suburban NJ woods hike.
