New Jersey is home to some pretty incredible hikes but if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind hike, this trail just might do the trick. It’s short, sweet, and spectacular scenic! You’ve got the option to enjoy TWO gushing waterfalls, or you can choose not to hike at all. Either way, you’ll end up looking down at Buttermilk Falls, following a staircase climb.
