Listed below are some of the resources used in order to plan hikes.  They are also great resources for hiking in the area, directions, mileage, trail reports, etc; I frequent these sites often and highly recommend them.  These are some of my go to resources.

New Jersey – a great resource to the many trails in and around the New Jersey area.

Gone Hikin’ – A great blog chronicling trail in NJ with her dog.

New York

Hike The Hudson Valley – a great resource for hikes in the Hudson Valley, extending into the Catskills.

Catskill Hiker – A huge resource on hiking the Catskills and nearby areas.


Other Resources

REI – Becoming a member gets you a dividend and access to some of the members-only sales.  Also, there is usually a good selection of used gear at pretty good prices.

AllTrails – I use AllTrails to map the hikes when I’m on the trail.  Further, I occasionally have to crack to open to see differences in the trails and what the trail map states.



I’ll try to update the page as I add resources.
