This hilly forest is a sanctuary for wildlife. Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy miles of challenging trails. Many trails offer a view of the New York City skyline. Birdwatchers are attracted to the forest for its ponds, streams and marshes that provide the perfect habitat for bird and other wildlife species. The forest borders the Ramapo Mountain Reservation, which is part of the Bergen County Park System.
An system of marked hiking and multi use trails are available for the public to explore. These trails offer visitors opportunities to hike interior woodlands and rocky vistas.
The multi use trails are suitable for hiking, mountain biking, and cross country skiing. Please obey all designated uses of the trails, posted at the trail heads and trail crossings.
Please note that trail difficulty ratings are opinion only. All trail mileages represent only the portion of the trail that goes through Ramapo Mountain State Forest, and complete trail lengths could be longer, therefore a topgraphical trail map is recommended for navigation of the trails. Maps may be purchased in the Ringwood State Park office (973-962-7031) or through the New York - New Jersey Trail Conference.
