This trail is great! Moderate is a good rating as you don’t really have too many strenuous spots but overall just very consistent rocky uphill/downhill terrain. There is a part where you can select to go the more difficult steep part, and I chose to go the easier alternate route because I had my dog with me who occasionally struggles with big rocks. You have plenty of great areas to rest with beautiful views!! I will definitely be doing this hike again.

great hike
scenic views, nice peaks
pay attention to trail colors

Great hike, one of my favorites.

Really enjoyed this hike! Waterfalls were gorgeous and the high point had amazing views. There was some confusion with the trail markers not being the most obvious but we adapted.

quick hike with amazing views (can see nyc on a clear day) , not too difficult, i would say moderate at the most, unfortunately people cant respect our parks (trash thrown around)

So I haven’t been hiking in a long time but this was a good challenge for my first time back. I loved every moment of this trail! I would rate it more stars if I could ! The views are awesome and it gets rocky which is so much fun !

Loved it - great mix of flat trails, hills and a bit of steep rock. Great views!

A little tough to follow the route without knowing you have to switch from HB (blue trail) to the very top, then take CH (yellow) down to PB west (white) back to HB (blue), but nice tough beautiful route. Looks like the pool under the falls would be a great refreshing swim in summer.

Went on 3/30 and could not cross with our small dogs because it was totally flooded from melted snow. Others could cross but the water was a river and about 6-12” deep... will return someday!

Such a great trail. Went 3/30, some parts were flooded but easy to move around. Nothing really blooming, but deserted and peaceful.

Nice hike. I wish that the all trails map showed the other adjoining trails

Did this a few months back without Osio rock. Today did the whole hike in reverse of how i did it last time. A bit of a challenge going the opposite way with rock scrambles Again great panoramic views and 360 view from Osio rock.

Trail was awesome definitely one of the best in NJ...High Point makes the hike and is a feature point for the trip.

Wife and I had an amazing hike on this trail. It has a bunch of interesting things, including waterfalls, log crossings over streams, narrow paths, minor scrambling, and AMAZING views. Probably one of the best views on Wyanokie High Point that my wife and I have seen in NJ. Trail is moderate with lots of rocks and some decent elevation gain. We started at Otter Hole and followed Blue/Green to Wyanokie and then came back on White, which is a little easier and less steep. Trails are very well marked and cared for. We plan to come back in the fall to see the foliage.

Made a short loop going Northwest. Green to Red to Orange to yellow and back to green and out.

Fire road in from Glenwilde Rd to waterfall an easy 2 miles back and forth with great views of the falls. Cross post brook and meet up with white blazed trail if desired.

Follow the black on blue blazes once past the stone living room to join the red blaze bearing right. If you bear left it dead ends not far from where they both meet. Great hike but doing the complete loop past the peak can be difficult at times.

I walk this area several times a year with friends and family and we enjoy it every time. This is such a great hike if you are in the area or even if you're willing to drive out. It has a wide range of sights, climbs, and wildlife that will make you want to come back in different parts of the year! The view of the skyline and the area alone is worth it. i really cannot recommend this hike enough!!

Great hike - - nice challenge. Views were great and the stone living room is real cool! There's a beautiful breeze at that location.

Great hike, very exciting and adventurous for kids! We recommend taking the blue trail (w views) to Oslo Rock and the red trail (shorter, no views) back.

Awesome hike. barely saw anyone. Can get a distant view of the NYC skyline on a clear day. Waterfalls, elevation, rock scrambles.. Saw some turkeys. Loved this hike, would definitely do it again.

Great little day hike . Passing "stone living room" was a great feature as well. Rocks rocks rocks

Very good trail easy to follow the view is gorgeous but it is VERY LONG and TIRING . You can see the NYC skyline from the top. I do not recommend for older people (60+) as I personally think it is a harder trail.

I thought it was a moderately hard hike with a lot of uphill hiking, but then balanced out with downhill parts too. It is dog-friendly though since my dog was able to make it the whole way. Definitely bring a lot of water.

But forgot to mention that you have to make it to Osio Rock to make it amazing.

Amazing as usual

As with most hikes in NJ that are fairly easy, the best advice I can give you is to get there early. We started on the green trail with 5 cars in the lot at 9:30am. We were back at 2:30pm and it looked like a park and ride with cars and people everywhere. High Point, one of the most scenic areas of the park, is less than a mile from the parking lot, so there are A LOT of people there by mid-afternoon. For good reason, its offers a very beautiful view with the NY skyline on the horizon. That was very cool!

We hiked about 6.6 miles along some of the southern trails. The trails are well-blazed. Having a trail map on hand will be a great help, as the trails coincide and intersect many times. We found several hikers that were a little lost without a trail map. The good news is that this is a heavily hiked area, so there is usually someone around to ask for directions. In short, very easy trails with scenic views. Well worth the trip!

Not so much an easy hike but gorgeous views at multiple different viewpoints. Didn't see a single soul until we got up to the high point! Loved it.

Views are nice but nothing astounding IMO, the Living Room is cool and a great place to relax and chat mid hike.

Has become my go-to hike when I'm looking for something quick and not to strenuous.
