High Mountain Park Preserve features a stunning view of New York City on a clear day. The basalt knob on the western descending section of the Yellow Trail yields a long view over a valley, a reservoir, and occasionally magnificent sunsets

High Mountain Park Preserve contains nearly 1,300 acres located in the Preakness Range, a northern continuation of the Second Watchung Ridge.  The Preserve includes High Mountain itself, which features excellent views of New York City. Much of the rest of the Range is occupied by William Paterson University, a golf course and private homes.

I just walked the loop part of Blue today for the first time in years.  Missed a few turns, got stuck in mud near far N.W turn, but good to see the marks as they should be.  Very little sign of use. I entered from Berdan Ave near Toys Are Us traffic light and walked in anti clockwise direction.  I didn't see the fork point coming from South West, but realized I had got on trail back to Valley Road and turned around and easily saw the left& right symbols on the same tree.  I recall that there was s sign sometime around 2004 or 2005 when I was a regular there.   Robert Fouchaux, Montclair,  formerly of North Haledon and 75 year veteran of High Mountain trails.

The blue-blazed Pancake Hollow Trail has been reblazed and is now easily followed.

Some of the Blue trail sections in the Pancake Hollow area are in poor condition and are in the process of being refurbished and we caution hikers to be extra alert. A GPS may prove helpful.
