Norvin Green State Forest
The undisturbed forest and rugged terrain of Norvin Green offers sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. Part of the Wyanokie Wilderness Area, the forest is near Wanaque Reservoir and is home to an extensive trail system built from old logging roads. Several trails link up with public and private facilities, including the Weis Ecology Center and reservoir property. The existing trails, either old forest roads or new trails constructed by volunteers, are perfect for nature walks and other outdoor classroom activities. With hills ranging from 400 to 1,300 feet in elevation, Norvin Green provides the avid hiker with scenic vistas, including the New York skyline, Burnt Meadow Brook and Lake Sonoma. The property is accessible by foot only.
This is the best place for miles around to take a hike. It's very easy to get to with some easy (and some rough uphill) trails, and there are rarely many people which allows for great hikes with friends.
We had a great time hiking this trail. Can be a bit challenging for beginners if you are going to the high point but it should be fine. Not too long and there is a view at top as well as w few waterfalls if you take a few different trials.
great trails most are challenging. BRING A MAP!
