Lake
“For those looking for a moderately challenging hike, let's try the Surprise Lake Loop. It is an uphill walk with some rocky outcrops to get up. From the house, go down the hill, make a right, and go about 1.5 miles. A small parking lot will be on your right (some boats will be stored there too), just after the NY/NJ state line, across from the Greenwood Lake Marina. Follow the trail up Up UP! Fantastic views of the whole lake before you get to the lake. http://www.nynjtc.org/files/u1/PettyHJH_chp24-SurpriseLakeLoop.pdf”
