This is a great place to hike. There are several different trails for various levels of hikers. There are lakes, streams and a waterfall. Dogs on a leash are allowed. The parking lot gets crowded on nice weekends.

A great local spot to take a quick not to steep hike. Pet friendly and very worth while. parking can be tough on nice days so be prepared. Mahwah PD will not let you park in the church.
