The Trail In New Jersey That Will Lead You On An Adventure Like No Other
New Jersey is home to a wide range of fantastic hiking trails, ranging from beginner-friendly loops to expert level endeavors. The trail featured today is closer to the latter. While it’s not incredibly long, coming in at just 4.3 miles, the Giant Stairs hike at Palisades Interstate Park is quite a challenging adventure. Are you up for it?

You can find a detailed description of the hiking trail and necessary directions at NJHiking.com. You can also find park and trail maps at NJPalisades.org. The Giant Stairs Hike is not suitable for young children or pets but it’s perfect for experienced hikers looking for a thrill. The scenery is spectacular from the State Line Lookout alone and, when the cafe opens again, it’s a perfect spot to get a post-hike snack.
