New Jersey Hike to Pinwheel’s Vista

An accomplished businessman, Avrahom Joseph has owned several companies in the Lakewood, New Jersey, area. In his leisure time, Avrahom Joseph enjoys hiking throughout the state.

Experienced hikers in New Jersey may wish to try Pinwheel’s Vista. This 9-mile round-trip hike mostly follows level ground, with a few steep sections ascending and descending from its start at the Wawayanda State Park headquarters. The trail offers views of the New Jersey and New York mountains, a steel bridge over a stream, a waterfall, and other spectacular features.

After leaving the Wawayanda State Park, the Pinwheel’s Vista trail follows blue blaze markers for 0.3 miles and then turns left at the first trail juncture, continuing along the A.T. trail marked with white blazes. It continues along the A.T. Trail, past the Wawayanda Shelter, along park roads, over the steel bridge, and through the forest. After crossing a stone wall and reaching the 4.3-mile marker, the path returns to the blue-blazed Wawayanda Ridge Trail, which continues the rest of the way to the overlook at Pinwheel’s Vista.
