Come see one of the best hikes in NJ with FSS Outdoor Recreation. This 7-mile round-trip hike is rated moderate to strenuous due to steep, rocky switchbacks in a short distance, hence gaining the nickname “Stairway to Heaven”. We will hike the Appalachian Trail along a picturesque boardwalk along a marsh, cross a suspension bridge, pass through a cow field before ascending the steep Wawayanda Mountain range.
Participants must be prepared with proper footwear, raingear, plenty of water, and a picnic lunch/snacks.
