2nd Mt Div trail folks:

There were questions about trail status, and some of you did not receive the 
marked-up map.

This is my take on trail status.   For more reliable and up-to-date info, 
you might contact Geordie or Pat.   Or better still, take a hike and check 
out the trails for yourself.

Note that the attached maps are approximate and subject to change.

KEY TO 2ND Mt Div TRAIL MAPS AND STATUS OF TRAILS



Old Hilltop Trail (OHT) [white diamond blaze]. This is the major north-south 
trail.  Verona Community Center to Doctor's Row.  In place.   Needs general 
work.   First priority: south end along berm behind ball field fence. 
Contractor may deny access at proposed cul-de-sac at north east boundary 
[Doctor's Row/Road A] during construction.   We should ask that denial of 
use be minimized.



White Rock Trail [white tetrahedron blaze]. Partially blazed from OHT to 
Prisoner's Pond and White Rock.  Under construction from White Rock to to 
water tank.   Planned to extend to North Caldwell field.



Arrow Trail [white arrow blaze].   Completed on switchback road joining OHT 
to Lenape Trail near Verona HS.



Second Mountain Trail [white two-peak blaze]. Complete from parking area 
near Fairview Avenue to OHT.   Also accessible from Well # 9.



Coyote Connector [white two-peak blaze]. Joins White Rock Trail to Arrow 
Trail.  Planned.



Fox Trail [white triangle blaze].  Partially completed from north end of OHT 
to mid OHT.   Planned from mid OHT to Verona/Cedar Grove boundary at 
Fairview Avenue.



Watchung Connector [white two-peak blaze].  Planned from pump house on north 
boundary of Hilltop to Fox Trail.   [not shown].



Lenape Trail. [rectangular yellow blaze]. Northbound from Arrow Trail: 
follows abandoned railbed through Cedar Grove, Mills Reservation, and 
beyond.   Southbound from Arrow Trail: through Verona Park and beyond. 
About 30 miles of the main trail are complete along with several miles of 
side trails.  The Lenape Trail is part of the partially-completed 
Liberty-Water Gap trail that will cross the State.    Thus, our Hilltop 
Reservation trails are connected to the statewide trail network.
