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.

Tripac for the most part but there are still some areas with lots of mud and surprisingly deep holes!
