This is a nice ridgeline trail through Ramapo Mountain State Forest.

Description

There are a lot of trails in this area many of which merge with other for a time. Some trails use the same colored blazing as others so it would be good to have a map or the Hiking Project mobile app with you while you hike. This trail runs from Skyline Drive into Ringwood State Park and ends at Martin J Ryerson Middle School. Regardless which direction you hike you climb up some switchbacks at first and then hike along a ridge line for several miles. The trail overall is not particularly steep, just a few steeper sections, and it can be rocky in places.
