This is a very scenic very beautiful hike meandering over rocks of the Palisades. Hike at your own risk. Always climbing over rocks but not scaling rocks it’s a hike
Scramble over the Giant Stairs – a long section of huge boulders that have tumbled from the Palisades – while enjoying views over the Hudson River into New York.
4.3 miles – Challenging due to scrambling. Surface ranges from flat to very rocky plus nearly a MILE of scrambling over large boulders.

Very steep down and back up from the Shore Trail. Steep cliff drop-offs. Not a great option for dogs and some kids. Avoid when wet or icy.

Our two cents:
Fun and unique hike that features the largest rock scramble available in New Jersey… and for this reason, this hike is certainly not everyone’s cup-of-tea.
