This trail is literally in my backyard. From my house to the top of the Stairway to Heaven Trail is approximately 13 miles. You won't be alone on most of your tour and expect a lot of "tourists" especially on the Boardwalk section of the...More
The trail, a moderate ascent, climbs a couple of hundred feet with a gorgeous view of the valley below. Pack a lunch and eat where the outcroppings are. Stunning. May be slippery when the trail is wet.
I climbed the trail for the 1st time a few years ago with my daughter. It was a tough climb going up but very peaceful. Once reaching the top, I was awestruck! You can see all of Vernon, into PA as well as NY from...More
We started at on the Appalachian Trail Boardwalk (adds some steps onto your hike but well worth it). Once you cross over the railroad tracks and walk through the field of cows you arrive at the entrance to Stairway to Heaven - I would agree...More
If you were going to begin on the boardwalk section which is a very popular and very fun place to walk, I highly recommend you bring bug spray. Especially in the summer months, the mosquitoes are quite troublesome.
There are wonderful scenic portions to the...More
This landscape is incredible! If you don't like the height of the stairs, you could always go in through Barrett Rd. Just follow the white markings on the trees and be sure to leave a message from the notebook left in the mailbox along that...More
This is a moderately hard trail that is quite steep in some places. Before it had a name (Stairway To Heaven) it was a locally known part of the AT leading up from Vernon to Waywayonda State Park. In the past it was lightly traveled...More

It’s just before the intersection of Route 517 and Carol Drive in Vernon NJ if you are heading north on Route 517. There is no parking lot but you can park on the side of the road - only where indicated. They will ticket you if you park on Carol Drive or one of the local side streets because of owners complaints.
Hey there...we wound up taking Rte. 94. The parking was on the side of the road but you'll know you're there because there's usually other people parked on the side with you. This is the starting point before getting on... More
Hey there...we wound up taking Rte. 94. The parking was on the side of the road but you'll know you're there because there's usually other people parked on the side with you. This is the starting point before getting on the boardwalk and suspension bridges. There is parking by the 515 entrance; however we wanted the full experience starting off by the 94 entrance. It's a challenging hike with some rough, uphill terrain...but totally worth it! Have fun ;-)
