Buttermilk Falls Trail (blue) Professional Review and Guide
"This hike offers as close to a wilderness experience as possible for Fido and companion in New Jersey, for few people climb beyond the falls and this section of the Appalachian Trail (AT) is far from any crossroad. Fido will enjoy the falls, woods, meadows, ridge-top breeze, and the cooling walk back on the moist Woods Trail. In spring and after heavy rains, the 204-foot Buttermilk Falls is spectacular. This rugged trail is for dogs and people with hiking experience only. Carry at least 3 liters of drinking water for Fido and 3 liters for you."
