Let's face it, there is not a lot of elevation to be had in the middle of Jersey. Clayton has some fun hills and the Yellow Trail at Baldpate will get your heart pumping a bit, but the Sourlands have quickly become my "local" favorite. Rocky, but very nice trails, not overgrown at all, even mid-summer. Odd system for marking trails, and marked pretty well... for the most part. I always seem to lose the trail at the top North corner, by the boulders. People seem to wander around and explore in this area a lot so a distinct trail is no so easy to follow. Fortunately, its pretty difficult to really get lost, just head downhill. There are a lot of options for distance and difficulty. Overall, a great place, but beware, the lot gets very full, very fast on the weekends.

Very nice and somewhat vigorous trek through the Sours. Just enough traffic to break up the still of mid day with some pleasantries of conversation from a passerby. Delightful yet energetic afoot in these hills. ☮️

This trail was perfect for a beginner hiker like myself. Very easy to stay on trail and have cell service throughout. Very forested atmosphere with nice scenery. However, I was hoping there would be a nice view at some point on this trail but there was none. Would recommend.
