Stairway to Heaven: Pochuck Valley to Pinwheel Vista - 7/31/10

Gorgeous and diverse section of the Appalachian Trail through northern NJ…

Hike boardwalks, a suspension bridge, hardwood forest, fields of wildflowers, train tracks, a cow pasture, a boulder field...

All of this before steeply climbing up Wawayanda mountain on the “Stairway to Heaven” – lots of stone steps up switchbacks – to one of the best viewpoints in NJ: Pinwheel Vista. You can see the Kittatinny Mountains in the distance, farms in the valley below, and on a clear day, High Point Monument is visible.

I just happened to come across this free map for the Pochuck Valley section of the AT that the NY/NJ Trail Conference put out this past September: http://www.nynjtc.org/files/AT_VernonPochuckMap_2010.pdf
