Route Type

Loop

Added by John Maurizi

This loop hike starts in Farny State Park then enters the Pequannock Water Shed area. Not many vista views but during fall this is a good hike to see the change in season.

The trailhead parking is at the end of Timberbrook Road, before the road enters Camp Winnebago (Boy Scouts). I hiked this in a clockwise directions starting on the Timberbrook Trail (yellow markers).  After about 1 mile the trail ends at a junction with the Four Birds Trail (white markers).  Turn right and follow for two miles to the top of Riley's Rise.  There is no view from the trail but you can work your way to an outcropping and have a look at Splitrock Reservoir.

After another mile you reach a trail junction with the Winnebago Trail.  Turn right and follow this easement through the Boy Scout Camp for one mile (yellow markers).  The trail exits onto the campground road.  Turn right and it's short walk back to the parking lot.
