Stage 106

⇐ Link to the previous stage: 105 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW JERSEY - Section 6 - Mile 1293.4 to 1307.3 - From Delaware Water Gap to Millbrook-Blairstone Rd
⇒ Link to the next stage: 107 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW JERSEY - Section 5.1 and 4.2 - From Battermilk Falls to Gren Anderson Shelter

Section or stage 5.2 of the Appalachian Trail, as it passes through the state of New Jersey (from mile AT 1307.3 to mile AT 1314.1, counted from Springer, Georgia), followed by a circular route to visit Buttermilk Falls, to through the branch known as Buttermilk Falls Trail, and return by mountain and local roads.
This section continues its journey along the crest of the Kittatinny Mountains, with a fairly flat path in the part that corresponds properly to the Apallachian Trail, crossing wooded areas that do not always allow you to appreciate the magnificent panoramic views offered by the path, to the east and west of the route.
Some of the sections of the trail have abundant stones, which remind us of some of the stages of Pennsylvania, but most of the path is comfortable and firm. The difficulty of the stage is not given by the section corresponding to the Appalachian Trail, but by the kilometers added to follow the side path towards Buttermill Falls (with a steep descent) and the return through local roads, with important climbs in the part end of tour
A short distance from the starting point, on Millbrook - Blairstone Road, the path passes through a small pond (the Beavers Pond), where beavers abound, and shortly thereafter reaches a clearing of the forest made for the passage of an electrical line, which allows to appreciate a wide panoramic view of the Wallpack Valley and the Plateau Pocono.
The rest of the route, including passing through the Buttermilk Falls, offers few emotions.
