“Great views, better trails.”

South Mountain Reservation

An excellent place to come on your own, with friends and with your dogs. The reservation has a host of trails across its many square miles that traverse the little mountain and wind down places that include stone staircases and waterfalls. Beautiful views of NYC from the entrance off South Orange Ave, too. Oh and don't forget the great dog park to let your furry friends run around off leash with others in the area.

Lots of walking trails, dog park, wildflower sculpture garden, views of nearby towns and even NYC. Acres and acres to explore. Great place to walk your dog or bike ride with your grand kids.

A great place to go for a great view of NYC. Always a treat to be there. You can picnic or take a walk or have something to eat.

Great views, quick, fun hikes. It is especially great for the panoramic views of the NYC skyline and for taking in the autumn colors. The only issue is that parking can sometimes be difficult.
