Pinwheel's Vista Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A nice stroll, often along old woods roads, leads to Pinwheel’s Vista, a viewpoint with a magnificent view of Vernon Valley and the Kittatinny Ridge. New York’s Catskills and Shawangunks can be seen to the north. There are a few steep ascents and descents. Wawayanda, which means “water on the mountain,” was the name the Lenape Indians gave to a nearby creek.
From the Wawayanda State Park headquarters, follow the 0.3-mile blue-blazed trail, which leads to the A.T. Turn left and follow the white-blazed A.T. south. In 0.1 mile, reach the 0.1-mile side trail to Wawayanda Shelter and continue hiking along the A.T. as it follows several other woods roads. The iron bridge over a stream is 0.8 mile from the shelter side trail. As you walk along the mountain, the Trail continues to follow and cross roads and in and out of the forest."
