We had never hiked in this park, so were excited to try a new place close to home. The hike was blazed okay, and although there were some blowdowns, we found the trail reasonably well maintained (comments on the NYNJTC mentioned poor trail conditions). However, I didn't find this hike very interesting I guess. There really weren't any exciting views, and part of the trail is near the road. One of the viewpoints was a plastic covered landfill. So, probably a hike we won't repeat.
