Gentle climb to top of Sourland Mountain. Beautiful views of woodlands and two large boulder fields. 6.1-mile loop of Ridge Trail and Roaring Brook Trail. Follow white square blazes until you reach Roaring Brook Trail (red circle blazes). Roaring Brook Trail is 2.1 miles before it rejoins the Ridge Trail and returns to the trailhead at the parking lot.

Well marked route but the trail intersections were confusing, had to stop and help a few people along the way, and I got turned around twice myself (trail post 5 is an example). I hiked this wearing my 19mo old in a hiking carrier and found this trail challenging, but doable. Very Rocky and a lot of uphill with no "ahh" moment, but it's quiet and serene.
