Nice hike except you can hear the traffic on Rt 287 the entire time.

The river is too full to allow you to cross without getting your shoes wet. For that reason, it's better to just start the hike from other trail heads. Other than that, the trail was well marked and not too strenuous. Be careful of snakes. We saw a big Mexican black kingsnake next to the river.

Unfortunately a tree has fallen on the stream bridge, creating a damn and a waterfall over it. It's not crossable unless you're willing to wade and climb over a fallen tree, not really safe, definitely not possible with kids.

it goooood

Not a strenuous hike. Very beautiful view!

Did this hike beginning from the park in Haskell. For first timers, although an easy hike/walk it was a little confusing. Once you enter woods and cross stream you'll see various direction signs, continue straight up the hill infront of you. The hike is straightforward from this point on. Once you reach an old paved road, walk straight and pass the first rocky road on your left. The second rocky road on your left is what you want if you are following the All trails GPS. This road walks you down along side the lake forna good distance. Once at the end, theres an intersection! Make a left toward the concrete pillars to get to the Castle. There will be a sign for Castle Point just up the hill. Once you get to the Castle, there is more to see behind the Castle. Walk to the back of the castle and follow the small trail on the left side by the driveway. There are lookouts and another structure just down that trail. Have fun and enjoy! It is amazing and beautiful

Did this with the return of the the Orange blazed Wanaque Ridge trail instead of going around the lake. Views are great! The entire description is listen on the NYNJTC website.

This is a good trail. It seems a little long without too many viewpoints but it is still worth it. It is great once you are up on the ridge though. Take your time when you are up there.
