Stairway to Heaven: Pochuck Valley to Pinwheel Vista

Vernon Township, New Jersey



7.3 miles


Added by Matt Alt

This hike is located right near mt.creek near vernon. I have done this hike 3 times and I highly recommend it!

There are two different ways to do this trail, one is park along the road on the right side of 517, just before Carol Drive. Then you should see a boardwalk that will take you over marsh with many scenic views (this is the longer way) but worth it. The second way you can take is the Route 94 Parking lot, closer to Pinwheel Vista: N41 13.169 W74 27.305. This will cut out the boardwalk over the marsh and is about 2.5 miles up to the top for some beautiful views.
