This is not a beginner or green trail. Being a local, I think it's easy for us to forget that people from out of state who aren't used to our natural North Jersey landscape features will find this challenging due to the rock gardens, steep climbing sections, roots, stream crossings, and log-overs. Also, the proper name for this is Yellow Scout, not Yellow Dot.


Access Info

Park at the intersection of Ruckman and Anderson or at the Anderson/Hickory Lane entrance

This trail is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!


Please note this is an unsactioned trail that is used by the Boy Scout at times on the weekend so please be courteous and give them the right of way.
