This walk is about 2 miles of Appalachian Trail west of route 94. The hike to the east of 94 is called Stairway to Heaven (which is about 2.5 miles to the Pinwheel Vista with a steep and rugged 1 mile.) If you want pretty nature scenes with minimal exertion, walk the Pochuck Boardwalk. The Pochuck Boardwalk is best reached at the junction of the AT and Mcafee Glenwood Dr. The first mile or so is boardwalk over meadow and marsh. Wawayanda Mountain looms to the east. Mountain Creek is visible further down the ridge to the south. The trail crosses a couple creeks. In warmer months you're almost guaranteed to see turtles out in the sun along a log. At the end of the boardwalk the trail winds through a forest. There is a bit of up and down but no significant challenge. Eventually the trail emerges from the woods and crosses train tracks. At this point route 94 is in view. The trail crosses a dairy farm. This is a good place to turn around.

For a nice low impact walk on a section of the AT that goes through wetlands this is the place to go. Plenty of wildlife and scenery to view and some nice benches to sit and relax on.
