Hike to the Devil's Tea Table

New Jersey Warsaw Rd. Pull-Off

Added by Pawel Bednarski

The Devil's Tea Table is a special place as the rocks just look unnatural. At the top of the hike there is a rock, known as the Devil's Tea Table, and it's staggering, honestly unique.

Apart from the rock, there's more trail to follow for a stunning overview and a great spot to hang out and relax. The view is a must-see, it is so much better in person. The hike is not challenging at all, it is basically a straight trail. Climbing some medium sized rocks might be required, but it is not anything difficult or dangerous. In the end, whatever the challenge may be, the view will be rewarding.

Finding the actual trail can be a challenge at first. The first time I went to this place, I literally climbed up the steep mountain, not knowing where the actual trail was. There's an area to park on Warsaw Road, however, the actual start to the trail is back on the main road. (By the "Falling Rock" sign).

Although there are "No Parking," and "No Trespassing" signs all over the place, people go to this place on the daily. Even with those signs, there's places to park and passing cars don't seem to have a problem. Fortunately, there is parking down the road if anyone wants to be safe. However, that would require more of a walk on the side of the shoulder.

Iconic Viewpoint

This location is one of the best in the area. The hike is extremely steep, requiring you to climb up some sections of rock (no rock climbing gear necessary, just functional hands and feet). The view from the top is beautiful, and it makes for an ideal sunset viewing. That being said, it is somewhat of a dangerous spot. Don't fool around on the cliffs, it's a straight vertical drop to the bottom. Also important to note: While this is a popular location for people to check out, it is technically private property and people have been fined for going up the cliffs. Trouble from police is unlikely, but possible

Couldn't Find Location

GPS would not pick it up. What a shame
