Hiking NJ – Giant Stairs – July 2020 (Update)

Giant Stairs is a 4.59 mile, moderate difficulty hike located about 30 minutes north of NYC at the State Line Lookout. It’s a fun quick escape that exhibits great views, challenging terrain, and decent elevation gain. The area is good for picnics and offers an excellent bird watching opportunity in the morning.

In the wintertime, some of the trails (A, B, C, and D) can be used for cross-country skiing.
