Sunday was a beautiful fall day to be in the woods. A great day for a 4 mile hike to Terrace Pond In West Milford, NJ within Wawayanda State Park.  Sunny, cool, no bugs, no snakes, no bears…just wondrous fall foliage and crisp, autumnal air.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has an excellent trail description for this journey, so be sure to give their site a perusal before heading out on the trail yourself! Find it HERE.

Looking for a quirky yet informative video tour of this hike? Check out my Studio Manager, Krysti Sabins‘, take on this intriguing trek in her nature and hiking series Unboring Exploring! The video even features an interview with a trail maintainer from the NYNJTC who is more than happy to lend a hand to preserving one of New Jersey’s prime hiking locales.
