Appalachian Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Trade the concrete canyons of Manhattan for the lush slopes around Greenwood Lake. As one of the most spectacular and challenging treks in the greater New York area, this short but demanding piece of the Appalachian Trail is ideally suited for seasoned hikers who crave views."
--Ben Keene, Best Hikes Near New York City (Falcon Guides).
"This section of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail is relatively easy and a joy to hike, with great views through the Kittatinny Valley along the New York–New Jersey border. Traverse bucolic farmland, wildflower meadows, railroad beds, streams, a wildlife refuge, and Pochuck Mountain."
--Mary Jasch, Best Hikes with Dogs: New Jersey (The Mountaineers Books).
