Waterloo / 517 Trail (white blazes) 5.3 miles
The Waterloo / 517 Trail is an out-and back route that connects the Route 517 trailhead, located just off Route 517 on Stuyvesant Road with the Waterloo trailhead, which is located on the Sussex Branch Trail. This is the main trail within the Northern section of Allamuchy Mountain State Park as it serves to connect two major trailheads as well as providing access to other trails within the park. From either trailhead this trail begins with a moderately steep climb. Following the climb from either direction, the trail becomes rolling as it rises and descends as it makes its way through the park. The user will find several moderate climbs along the way which may pose a challenge to the beginner hiker or mountain biker. This trail provides a myriad of experiences for the user by crossing numerous rock gardens, granite rock slabs and creeks.
