The Long Path along the Palisades cliffs has been rerouted for about 0.7 mile south of the State Line Lookout, substituting a pleasant walk through the woods for a roadwalk. Previously, the Long Path (proceeding north from the Forest View Trail) was routed along the Old Route 9W (now the access road to State Line Lookout) up to the Lookout Inn. The trail now crosses the road and reenters the woods, following a newly-constructed ski trail to the Lookout Inn. It passes in back of the Inn and briefly rejoins Old Route 9W about 500 feet beyond (it soon turns right, leaving the road, and follows another ski trail).
