There are many trails to explore in the area. This hike starts out on the A.T. Climb up Green Pond Mountain and then past Island Pond. The trail winds through Lemon Squeezer, a hole in some ledges and climbs up Island Pond Mt and Surebridge Mt. Take the Ramapo-Dunderberg trail on Finger board and Hogencamp Mountain. This stretch of trail has great views of the entire area. It is also the result of a forest fire some time ago. Take the Dunning Trail to the Boston Mine. From there take the Arden-Surebridge trail down Green Pond Mountain.
