Indian Rock/Wanaque Ridge Trail Loop

Ramapo Mountain State Forest

This loop hike climbs to scenic Ramapo Lake and follows the Wanaque Ridge Trail along the western ridge of the Ramapo Mountains, with panoramic views.

41.03463, -74.28553

At the southern end of the parking area (to the right, as you enter), you will see a kiosk and three inverted-red-triangle-on-white blazes on a tree. These blazes mark the start of the Indian Rock Trail, blazed many years ago by Joseph "Ace" Tachine (who also erected many hand-painted signs along the trail), and recently reblazed by the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.

I've been hiking 1-2 times a week this Summer and this trail was probably the best marked trail. Would like to thank David Chazin for all his hiking descriptions!

This hike (and any others that start at the same trailhead) should be updated to show that they are accessible by public transportation.
