Very good trail easy to follow the view is gorgeous but it is VERY LONG and TIRING . You can see the NYC skyline from the top. I do not recommend for older people (60+) as I personally think it is a harder trail.

I thought it was a moderately hard hike with a lot of uphill hiking, but then balanced out with downhill parts too. It is dog-friendly though since my dog was able to make it the whole way. Definitely bring a lot of water.

As with most hikes in NJ that are fairly easy, the best advice I can give you is to get there early. We started on the green trail with 5 cars in the lot at 9:30am. We were back at 2:30pm and it looked like a park and ride with cars and people everywhere. High Point, one of the most scenic areas of the park, is less than a mile from the parking lot, so there are A LOT of people there by mid-afternoon. For good reason, its offers a very beautiful view with the NY skyline on the horizon. That was very cool!

We hiked about 6.6 miles along some of the southern trails. The trails are well-blazed. Having a trail map on hand will be a great help, as the trails coincide and intersect many times. We found several hikers that were a little lost without a trail map. The good news is that this is a heavily hiked area, so there is usually someone around to ask for directions. In short, very easy trails with scenic views. Well worth the trip!

The view was really amazing but the only bad thing was following the blue trail all the way only to end up at a tree with a sign that said "trail ends" idk how they could just end it like that pretty disappointing but other than that it was great, wouldn't say easy though

Not so much an easy hike but gorgeous views at multiple different viewpoints. Didn't see a single soul until we got up to the high point! Loved it.
