Ramapo County Reservation: Ramapo River


Welcome back to National Parks & other public lands with T! If you are seeing this on Twitter or Facebook, please visit the blog to see all of the photos and read the story by clicking the link.


We frequently visit Ramapo Reservation with our pups as it’s a dog-friendly park with a nice network of trails. As you enter from the parking lot, you will cross a steel bridge over the Ramapo River.


The Ramapo River is a tributary of the Pompton River, running for approximately 30 miles from southern New York into northern New Jersey. The section in the park attracts fishermen and kayakers,


The loop around Scarlet Oak Pond, to the right after the bridge, travels between the river and the pond for a little while before turning in towards the mountains.

  1. Thanks Theresa. Your posts and pictures are a continuing affirmation that I don’t have to stay out West to really capture the country’s natural beauty and there are many treasures a short distance from what we perceive to be the really populated and urban areas of the country. And glad to see that Trudy has adopted the adventurous spirit of your family.

  2. The Ramapo Reservation is beautiful, T, and how wonderful to live so close. I enjoyed the photos;and the video, too, with the swift-moving water and adorable pup.
