This was such a fun trek. Lots of great views and terrains. Not crowded and we got a little bit of rain on it which made it kind of pleasant because it was refreshing. A variety of trails with lots of turns and elevations.

steep way up to the N that’s forsure, but it’s still an enjoyable hike. The excitement to reach the N is what kept me going highly recommend checking out the view of the City from this spot at night BEAUTIFUL!

Incredible views! Went early morning to watch the sunrise. Only a few people at the trailhead then but it was packed later in the day. There is a water source 1.75 miles in if you are backcountry camping. Trail is well marked. Also, if you are backcountry camping, please have enough brains to NOT build a campfire. Came across a still smoldering fire left at the top that wasn’t put out properly. The place is a tinder box and the entire trail is a visual reminder of the last forest fire to rip through here.

This hike is closer to 17 miles so keep that in mind. Super steep and no reliable water sources at this time so plan accordingly. The views were spectacular!

April 4th 2020! A central Jersey Gem. In the midst of COVID19 hiking solo. Its not too crowded or lonely. People were nice. Hard to get lost. A beautiful place to hike, the scenery changes continuosly with black river flowing by, waterfalls, ruins, pine forest hemlocks along the gorge. You can do the easy trails or choose the green and red for breathtaking scenery! You feel content after the hike.

Great short trail with amazing views. Observation deck is currently locked, but you can still climb the stairs for a great view.

What a great hike except for those that do not know hiking rules! I watched a dog come through the canyon that the owners walked pasted 4 signs and then told someone that worked for parks that it was a service dog. When asked questions they could not answer them about what type of service dog it was and left it’s shit in a plastic bag today on the trail! If your dog is not a service dog don’t lie! To those that have service dogs for real issues have enough issues with places they need to be! Also if you don’t have hiking and trail educate can you please research before you decide to go off trail! Trails are there for a reason! They will close this place if we don’t protect it

The top of shadow canyon had the best view I’ve seen so far. I went from the Parking lot , onto the Mesa trail , then onto homestead trail, up shadow canyon , down the bear trail and back onto the Mesa to finish .. this came out to 11.5 miles. The hike up to shadow canyon was a true challenge with some scrambling, but worth it ... minor ice and mud , but hiking boots were fine.

Gorgeous trail, anyone can do it.

Tried 1 mike in and came back out because I didn’t have the proper snow boots to tackle the snow covered trail. I’ll try it again at a later month.

Had a lovely little hike with my 4 year old. She made it 1.5 miles before saying her legs were “too tired” We saw a red tailed hawk, turkey vultures, quail, and turkeys. Wear long pants, there’s lots of poison oak!

great hike! at first i felt the top wasn’t that high cause there’s two higher mountains on each side but the view was still good

Really good trail!! Lots of snow packs right now. Lots of shade. Due to COVID19 the trash cans have been locked so you will have to pack out your trash. One thing that was really annoying was the amount of people allowing their dogs to run off leash.
