Terrace Pond Trail

Terrace Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Getting to Terrace Pond is half the fun of this hike, but be forewarned: kids can’t resist stopping dozens of times along the way to launch leaf boats down a brook, climb huge boulders, or admire the tiny waterfalls. At several points along the trail, you’ll have a good chance of finding the rare, pink lady’s slipper, and if you’re hiking in May or June you’ll be treated to the vibrant blooms of wildflowers.

Hold out for lunch until you reach the granite ledge overlooking the pond, where you can gaze down upon this sparkling jewel. Plan on starting early so you can spend a lot of time enjoying Terrace Pond, which is one of the loveliest places in northern New Jersey. Although the trail is easy most of the way, sturdy shoes are recommended for negotiating a few of the rocky, sometimes slippery, areas."

Gorgeous hike to a scenic pond. One of the best hikes in NJ. The trail guide has the easiest, albeit least interesting approach. For a more scenic, interesting and rugged approach take the Terrace Pond North Trail, then return via the Terrace Pond South Trail suggested in the trail guide
What a beautiful hike! Really diverse in terms of trail level. Lots of flat, but then some great climbing uphill around 60% through. Half way through there is a great spot to sit and watch two small falls. The best part is that the trail was totally empty except for white tailed deer!
