“Beautiful day for a hike”

Ramapo Valley County Reservation
Ranked #1 of 4 things to do in Mahwah
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 January 2018

My girlfriend and I have hiked this reservation before but today it was very challenging because some parts of the trail were covered in ice, which made for some difficult maneuvering on the uphill and downhill sections. We transversed up to the reservoir, which was frozen over of course. Many people were out hiking to day due to the fact that the temperature was hovering around the fifty degree mark. Overall it felt really good to be outdoors after a couple of weeks of frigid weather. There are some easy loops located here and a couple of difficult ones. I believe there are 21 miles of trails located in this reservation and five loops. I can't wait to do this in the spring!

Ramapo Reservation is a beautiful sanctuary having dozens of hiking trails which appeal to hikers of all fitness levels. The views are breathtaking whether they are at the entrance to the reservation, spots along the trails, or the upper lake. The park is dog friendly which is an added bonus. It’s definitely a place to visit and take in all the magnificent views!

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.
