This trail is in the Pequannock Watershed and requires a permit. The permit costs $14.

Description

This trail can be accessed from the south off of the Fire Tower Ridge Trail or from the north off of Stephens Road. The trail is marked with blue-over-white blazes but the trail is easy to follow. This trail offers great views of Hank's Pond, though there are no views after passing the pond. Along the shoreline you'll pass a few stone ruins along a level trail. This trail is often done as part of a loop with Hank's East Trail.
