This is my favorite hike in NJ. We added on to this hike taking the spur to the right, orange marked trail, to Crater Lake. You can walk all the way around Crater Lake or just go back down. We then looped Hemlock Lake. Nice rocky outcropping at the end of Hemlock for a place to rest. Love the views and not too many people.
