‪For our annual fall hike, my husband and I did the Van Slyke Castle Loop trail, which All Trails lists as moderate and I would say that it's pretty accurate. It starts off as a nice, flat trail. The area by the lake is paved. After the lake is when it gradually starts getting harder. There are castle ruins at the top, and getting to the top was the tricky part, though not impossible - even for beginner-ish hikers like us.

We got there at around 10:15 on a Wednesday morning. By the time we got up to the castle, it was probably around 11:30. We had the entire place to ourselves, which we loved. We probably spent half an hour up there just hanging out, exploring, and taking photos, and not one person came by. It sounds a little eery but it was actually amazing. I can see it getting extremely packed during the weekends. I would highly recommend taking a random day off work like we did, if you plan on visiting here, just so you can avoid the crowds.

Here are a few tips:

1. The entrance where you need to park is very easy to miss. And if you miss it (like we did), you'll have to drive for a few miles before you can make a turn back round. If you see a sign for Ramapo State Forest, pull in there (even if Google maps will try to take you to a different location for the trailhead)
2. Once you get back down and onto the trail loop, pay attention to the white trail markers. The marker where you need to turn to start exiting is really easy to miss - especially since there is fork right next to it, which leads to a straight trail and looks like it leads to the parking lot but it most definitely does not. We learned this the hard way

I would do this trail again if someone hasn't been and wanted to check it out. It's a pretty unique trail.‬

‪Get to the parking lot very early or very late as it can become traffic jam. We went at likely the most ideal time of year when the whether was still hot, but the leaves were starting to change. The colors were just changing and vibrant and there was plenty of lush green. We took many different trails, hiking up Lookout, enjoying the forest, then circling the lake and finally heading up to the Stone Tower. The stone tower was the biggest disappointment, only because the areas been trashed by those who visit the park casually. Will go back, maybe in the snows.‬

‪The “Yellow and Cannonball” trail loop - very nice first half, climbing west and north to the beautiful views of the lakes and mountain ranges from the mountain-top rim. Views onto the lakes continue as you take the trail downhill. Thereafter it is a flat, lake-side stroll along the frozen lake.
Quite busy with hikers for a cold day in February.
Recommended to be hiked counterclockwise‬

‪Love it here. Used to hike to the castle years ago but brought my sister, 12 year old son and 2 nephews today for a hike. We started at the lower lot and took the blue along the lake, through a beautiful property to Castle Trail and then back down through the red. What a beautiful place.‬

‪I've driven past the parking lots for years, and finally got together with friends for an afternoon hike. From the upper lot on Skyline drive we were able to get to the Van Slyke ruins and the watertower, and back in a comfortable 3 hours. Some steep sections, and very rocky terrain, but a beautiful hike and great views of NYC when you get to the top!‬

‪Hey N.J. is more than the turnpike and Elizabeth
Places like this make you realize there is more garden in the garden state than you think
Places like this need to be cherished.... there is more to nature than watching nature videos. Take someone you love and just go!‬

‪I am fortunate to live 10 min from the reservation. We have taken our dogs for long walks here for the past 35 years. The weekends get a little crowded, sometimes parking lot is closed (FULL). if you can go mid week it is much better, we never go on the weekends. We are regulars from April through October.‬

‪My husband and I along with our son and his wife recently hiked this park. The path is pretty much uphill and very uneven. But it was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the stream and waterfall as we hiked. It lead to a Lake with a dam. From here, we hiked up to Van Slyke Castle. It was much more difficult hike ...but were rewarded with fantastic views of New York City and being able to traverse around the abandoned castle which was fascinating. We would definitely hike this trail again‬

‪My girlfriend and I like to hike in Ramapo Mountain State Forest. On this particular occasion the parking lot we usually walk from was packed, not a spot to be found. My girlfriend called a friend of hers and asked if there were any other entrances. Sure enough, we were told that if we travel about another mile on Rt 208 we will come to an area on the side of the roadway which can fit four cars and that there would be a one lane bridge that we can walk across and get into the preserve. We did this and sure enough we parked behind the only other vehicle there and walked across the one lane bridge and hiked about three miles. We usually hike a fairly level trail as this was totally uphill. At least coming back was a bit easier. ‬
