Ramapo Mountain State Forest At A Glance...
About Ramapo Mountain State Forest
This hilly forest is a sanctuary for wildlife. Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy miles of challenging trails. Many trails offer a view of the New York City skyline. Birdwatchers are attracted to the forest for its ponds, streams and marshes that provide the perfect habitat for bird and other wildlife species. The forest borders the Ramapo Mountain Reservation, which is part of the Bergen County Park System.

Our Personal Take...
We had wanted to visit Ramapo for a long time, and finally made it happen in 2019 (some pictures from the trip)! It was a great hike. We do want to mention that this place looks like it'll get packed. Might want to visit during the week and not in the summer.
Trail & Path Info
Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy miles of challenging trails! You can also find some easier-to-walk paved paths (old roads) bring you from the top of Skyline Drive down to the lake.
