I used the trail in the "50 hikes in Nj" A 2 -3 hour hike turned into a 4 and a half hour hike, It was supposed to be easy hike...follow the blue trail till u get to the Orange trail. The blue trail was beautiful going along the river. I found the Orange trail, also called the Ridge Trail, I ket following the Orange Markers and ended up at a YMCA Camp. One of the counselors told me that their trail around the camp is also marked Orange. He pointed me in the right direction and I headed towrds what looked like a RIDGE. I finally found the Orange Trail Markers and the hike along the Ridge was Great with a few challenging portions. The hike down was very steep and the rocks were a little wet, Ice was still on portions of the trail It was a great 1st hike of 2008 and the first major hike after turning 60.
