We did this trail a little different then the map. We parked in a boat basin in Greenwood lake and took uber to the entrance of the applachian trail in Warwick NY. We then took the trail about 6 miles along the applachian trail that went along a ridge line. When we reach the border of NY/NJ (yes it's spray painted on a rock) we took the blue trail down to the boat basin and back to the vehicle. It was definitely fun and not terribly difficult, see my map if you want to try it.

We made a right at the start of the applachian trail, did about 3 1/2 miles then turned and headed back. It wasn't a particularly difficult hike but with the snow on the ground you had to be careful. Will definitely come back in the Spring or Summer and do it again.

This was a fun trail. It didn't have too many steep inclines or declines but you got a good workout. It was beautiful forested areas with a very small waterfall. One decent peak as well.

Great hike, some nice challenging rocky portion in the mix. Highly recommended.

Way more rocky and rigorous than anticipated! Much more difficult than the NJ portions a bit south, but a ton of fun. Some rock scrambles and harder-to-follow trails, but if you keep your eyes open you'll be just fine.
