The Highlands Trail extends over 150 miles from Storm King Mountain on the Hudson River in New York south to Riegelsville, New Jersey, on the Delaware River. The route connects scenic attractions in both states. Ultimately, a network of trails including alternate routes and multi-use paths is envisioned. The Highlands Trail is a combination of co-alignment on established trails, new trails, and road walking. The co-aligned sections bear both trails' blazes, except for the Appalachian and Allis Trails, which have plastic Highlands Trail logos at critical points. Hikers must pay attention at intersections as the Highlands Trail often leaves one trail to join another. The Highlands Trail blaze is a teal-colored diamond. Camping is not permitted along the Highlands Trail. Thru-hikers must stay at bed-and-breakfast facilities along the route, or at established State Park camp grounds. No fires, horses, bikes, or motorized vehicles are permitted on the Highlands Trail unless specifically allowed by local regulations.
