Trailhead parking for Norvin Green State Forest at the New Weis Center located at 150 Snake Den Road, Ringwood will be closed on Sunday, September 8, 2019 for a special event. New Jersey Search and Rescue will be conducting an all-day practice drill. Parking is not allowed along Snake Den Road. Vehicles parked along Snake Den Road will be ticketed.
All other Norvin Green trailhead parking lots will be open and accessible on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
As an alternative to often-overcrowded parking options for Norvin Green South, we recommend checking the following options in Norvin Green North:
- Crescent Drive (for Manaticut Point Loop and Lake Sonoma)
- Burnt Meadow Road (for Burnt Meadow Loop and Monksville Reservoir overlook vista)
Ramapo Valley County Reservation is also relatively close, providing an extensive trail network for hikers of all skill levels.
