About Ringwood State Park

An intricate system of marked hiking trails are available for the public to explore, some of which connect the Ringwood and Skylands sections of the park. These trails offer visitors opportunities to explore interior woodlands and rocky vistas.

Multi use trails are also available in the Skylands section of the park. These trails are suitable for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Please obey all designated uses of the trails, posted at the trail heads and trail crossings. A 7.5 mile mountain bike loop trail begins in the Shepard Lake section of the park. For information on this trail and mountain biking volunteer opportunities please visit Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association.

Please note that the trail difficulty ratings are opinion only. All trail mileages represent only the portion of the trail that goes through Ringwood State Park, 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 park office or through the New York - New Jersey Trail Conference Web site. A park map is available in the park office.
