Pack a lunch and come enjoy nearly 360 degree stunning views from the shade of the stone pavilion on top of a mountain.

This pavilion is one of the key features along the New Jersey section of the Appalachian Trail. There is a parking lot a very short hike part way down the mountain, but I recommend backpacking in from a different area to take in more of the beauty of the trail, mountains, and views in this area. Depending on the time of year, you may encounter resting thru-hikers who are willing to share their stories and any relevant up-to-date trail information. At this point they would be either just over or just under the halfway point on their 2,200 mile AT backpacking journey.
