Leaving off the Ramapo-Dunderbrerg Trail to the Dunning Trail heading west toward the White Bar: If you follow the yellow-blazed right turn off the R-D onto the Dunning, you'll first have to navigate…Continue

On our return route at the junction of Long Path & Popolopen Gorge Trail (going toward Turkey Hill Lake) we totally missed a left turn blaze on the (Red) Popolopen Gorge Trail. Or more likely, the double-blazes weren't there…Continue
