Palisades: Forest View Trail

Alpine, NJ 07620

Trailhead on the summit is on the east side of U.S. Route 9W in Alpine, about 2.5 mi. north of Closter Dock Road. The trail crosses a pedestrian bridge over the Palisades Interstate Parkway, then overlaps the Long Path north about 0.5 mi. to the Women’s Federation Monument and down a steep ravine. After it branches east from the Long Path, the Forest View Trail steeply descends through a series of switchbacks to its junction with the Shore Trail, about 3 mi. north of Alpine Picnic Area & Boat Basin. (Very steep: elevation 500 ft.)
