This magnificent 255-acre wooded ravine on Fuller Mountain in Warwick stretches from north of Black Rock Road to the New Jersey border. A stream called Fullers Brook runs the length of the preserve. Trail 1 (trailhead at opposite side of parking area): Moderate 1.75 mile round trip trail that leads to a fantastic vista overlooking the Warwick Valley. Trail 2: mile loop that meanders along and over Fullers Brook. The informational kiosk features info and trail map. Both trails are blazed/marked.

Did the longer trail. View at the end of the trail is great. The look out point is super cool. The way back is definitely moderate (rocky, muddy and a little steep at points. while the way up is pretty easy.

I did both the north and south trails this morning. Both were very nice, short peaceful hikes. The view from lookout at the end of the north side (the trail across from the parking lot) was lovely! The markers were more clear on the north side than on the south side, but both were clearly marked. Took about an hour and 15 to do both hikes at a leisurely pace. On the south side, the loop did require crossing the stream, which involved getting my sneakers wet. But it rained a lot yesterday so maybe that it isn't typical.We didn't run into anyone on either of the trails, which was nice since parking at crowded trails is always a pain. I also saw the wood carving/shrine that someone including in a picture. Does anyone know what that is about?

Nice view at the top. Make sure you cross the road from the parking lot if you want to get to the deck with the view in the pictures.

Very easy Trail. Went to the left first...pretty views at end. Went to the right and got about 3/4 miles in and there were bears so we bolted lol. Would like to go back to try it again.

We went South accidentally so wrong side to get a view. We'll do the north side next time. (Cross the road after parking )
