NY - NJ State Line
  Poor            Great




My wife and I parked at the State Line Trail about a month ago and wanted to clarify regarding parking here. The marina is on the east side of the road the lake side and you can't park there at all. On the west side, across from the marina, there is a gravel driveway leading up hill, that has two levels of parking. It's a bit confusing, because the first level of parking is also marina parking, and you shouldn't use that either. However, if you continue up the driveway to the top level, there is space for about 3 to 5 cars next to the NJ State Park kiosk. This is legal just don't block off any marina equipment that may be stored off to the side. So don't be confused by the initial appearance of the lot just keep going all the way to the top. There is a sign that explicitly bans parking after 8 pm, so this is for day hikes only. Also, be warned that the State Line Trail is quite a difficult climb we came down it and that was bad enough. 11/21/08 3-5

The marker on the attached map indicates the approximate location of the entrance to the parking area mentioned in the previous listing. The State Line Trail is a blue-blazed trail that climbs 1.2 miles to meet the AT. There is no direct road access to this end of the section. 11/24/08 1

If you go into Street View from the map posted above, you should get a view to the west. The main building of the marina is on the other side of the road. The driveway that you will be looking at is the entrance. Go all the way up and back to the top of the hill that's where the hiker parking is. You can't see it real well in this picture but it's the area behind the small white sign in the distance in the center of the picture. 04/26/09 3-5

From the New York Thruway, I-87, take Exit 15B to NY 17 northbound. Continue to NY 17A. Go left here and follow NY 17A about 13 miles west to the northern outskirts of Greenwood Lake and the intersection with NY 210. Go left on NJ 210. Follow signs for this route through Greenwoods Lake Village. In approximately half a mile this route makes a turn to the right (west), then turns left and continues south. The marina and parking for the State Line Trail are about 4 mils from NY 17A, just after the road crosses into New Jersey. The coordinates at the intersection of the AT with the Sate Line Trail are 41.191715, -74.343964. If accessing the AT via this trail, northbound too NY Sec. 13 is right, southbound to NJ Section 1 is left at this intersection. 07/19/10

The State Line Trail does not meet the AT exactly at the NY/NJ border. You have to travel .2 miles north on the AT from the State Line Trail in order to observe the actual NY/NJ border. On Sunday 8/6/2017 there were at least 7 cars parked at the 3rd level of the parking lot across from the Marina and more parked on the 2nd level. The State Line Trail is clearly marked and there was a port-a-potty in the parking lot. Very rugged climb. Very clear directions painted on rocks at the intersection of State Line Trail and AT. 08/15/17 9 1

Here is the route I used to get to this point from I-84. Take Exit 4E off I-84 near Middletown, NY, towards NY 17. Go east (compass southeast) for about 5 miles to Exit 124. At the end of the ramp go left (south) on NY 17A towards Florida , New York . NY 94 merges and the two routes coincide for a few mile to Warwick. there NY 17A goes left. This is 11 miles from the NY 17 exit. Continue straight ahead on NY 94. In approximately 4 miles the road crosses into New jersey and becomes NJ 94. The trail crossing is 2 miles further just south of the intersection with County Road 515. Parking is on the left. 07/17/10
