Gorgeous Hike
Hiked this in mid-August. It's very overgrown in many spots, and yes, very hard to find the trail at the end of Steeny Kill Lake. That said, this was one of my favorite hikes this summer. There were so many beautiful flowers around the lake, along the stream, and along the boardwalk - and I can't believe I've never seen the view from the "top" of NJ until this hike! Afterwards, lounged at the edge of Steeny Kill lake with a book. Couldn't have been a better day.
