  • Rent a car in Newark, is a one-day tour. I saw small Manhattan skyscrapers far away and climb up to the top of the mountain by car. Displays photographs of the process was this park is on the inside of the Tower on the top of the mountain. There was also picture below trees are yellow color and become the fall foliage season. What amazing comes around and kinda sorry. Also River is the Hudson River.

  • This park is just perfect. There's a lake for kayaking, there's a mountain on the other side of the lake, across the street you can do some moderate hiking, the bathrooms are clean - when I visited, nice tall trees and oh so serene! Saw many persons painting the fantastic view! Swimming is not allowed.
  • Lake Skenonto is one of the few places near NYC where you can swim, camp and enjoy nature without being bothered by lifeguards, park rangers and police. There are also a few shelters in the area. The lake is not accessible by car and you will need to hike for about half an hour. Make sure to bring enough water or you'll need to drink water from the lake.
  • Great place to hike. Really well marked trails (but definitely have some sort of gps / map ... Just in case. Try the blue do trail for a but of a challenge!
  • It was great super friendly staff, got me a few garbage bags really enjoy coming here.
  • This place is nice clean and organized it was more for kids like a day care lake wich is safe for families great place for bbq.
