The Highlands Trail is continuously evolving, connecting the Delaware Water Gap in New Jersey through New York to the Connecticut Border. The trail enters Orange County via the Appalachian Trail as it intersects Lakes Road in the Town of Warwick. This is where the Trail has been recently rerouted.
Utilizing Lakes Road for approximately 1.7 miles, the trail traverses northeast and makes a left onto Camp Monroe Road. The trail runs the entire length of 0.3 miles to Trout Brook Road. The trail then utilizes Trout Brook Road for approximately 0.7 miles to access Laroe Road. The intersection of Dock Hill Road and the CSX railroad crossing represents the end of the west of Hudson portion of the Trail. At this point in time there is a disconnect to the east of Hudson portion of the Highlands Trail.
