Musconetcong Branch & Railroad Trail (Red Blaze) Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike is short in length but rich in challenges and interest. Its rugged terrain includes paths along rocky ravines and waterfalls. It provides views of the Kittatinny Ridge and glimpses of the Musconetcong River. The historical industrial context evident along the route adds an extra dimension."
--Susan Charkes, AMC's Best Day Hikes Near Philadelphia (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"This hike is beautiful. It may confuse you and kick your butt, but it is well worth it. The scenery is amazing and the hills challenging. The best time to go might be on a foggy day, when you’ll feel like you’re in a magical place. One of the best things about this hike is that the trails are only open to foot traffic.
After hiking for a few minutes, you’ll begin to climb steadily. Again, keep an eye out for large rocks, take your time, and watch your footing. After some rolling hills, you’ll hear the running water of the creek and waterfall below."
