Only minutes away from the MountainLife house. There is a parking lot at the start of the trail off of Vernon Warwick Road at the Appalachian Boardwalk Entrance. You can also walk from the Mountain Life house down the road and jump on the trail from there. The route begins as a steep climb up to the top of Wawayanda Mountain on the Appalachian Trail. Along the way up there are many large boulders that are great for bouldering. Once on top, you will get a great view of the Vernon Valley, Pochuck Mountain, the Kittatinny's, Catskills, and the Black Dirt region. The trail then traverses the top of Wawayanda Mountain to another lookout. This is when you will start your bushwhacking along the old Appalachian trail route. It is more like a bushwhack because you may have difficulties finding the trail most of the way as you go down the mountain. While descending you will pass a waterfall and some nice cascades. Be careful on this section as there are many unstable rocks in the area. As you go right onto the unmarked path, follow along the mountain base back to the Appalachian Trail.

Water Park

Mountain Creek Waterpark is a water park located in Vernon, New Jersey, United States, on the grounds of the Mountain Creek ski resort. The park consists primarily of water-based attractions and opened in 1998. Its predecessor, Action Park, one of the first modern American water parks, was open from 1978 until 1996 and became infamous for its poor safety record. At least six people are known to have died as a result of mishaps on rides at the original park. Despite this, the park was very popular and attracted thrill-seekers from across the New York metropolitan area. On February 9, 1998, Intrawest announced the purchase of the majority of the Vernon Valley/Great Gorge ski area, including the Action Park property. After a massive overhaul, which included revamping rides and removing attractions deemed either outright unsafe or inappropriate relative to Intrawest's vision, the water park was reopened as Mountain Creek Waterpark. In 2010, the Mountain Creek ski area and waterpark was sold to a group led by Eugene Mulvihill, the former owner of Vernon Valley/Great Gorge and the owner of the adjacent Crystal Springs Resort.

Theme Parks

Only 27 minutes away from the #MoutainLife house. Though preview tickets were available starting in May, park developers Merlin Entertainments announced that LEGOLAND New York was officially open on July 9, 2021. Rides and attractions are geared towards kids ages 2–12 — and their caregivers, since most attractions are designed for families to ride together: You'll enter through the Brick Street. Be prepared to stop and take selfies under the iconic LEGOLAND arch, with lots of hilarious minifigs dressed in different outfits and with a few stand-out LEGO sculptures. The Big Store is also here — you're going to want to stop there on your way out. (Bring re-usable shopping bags.) Bricktopia is the land where wannabe Master Builders can unleash their creativity. There are places where kids can build structures and test their sturdiness on a shaking earthquake plate, or make race cars and see if they'll survive a high-speed drag race down a massive hill. Kids can also sign up to take part in guided builds with adult builders (an in-costume pirate, for example, might lead kids through making a pirate ship). But the standout here is the LEGO Factory Adventure Ride, a trackless attraction where riders are shrunk down to the size of a minifig. If you make a pose for a photo, your minifig poses just like you! LEGO Ninjago World gives kids a chance to be aspiring ninjas — they can go through a ninja training camp, where they'll run around, twirl and climb on an interactive playground. Once they've trained, they can do LEGO Ninjago: The Ride, where they put their moves to the test trying to defeat bad guys and earn points. Riders' hand motions actually turn into in-ride Ninja powers. The LEGO Castle area has two dragon-themed roller coasters, depending on your appetite for thrills. There's also a Tower Climb Tournament ride, where you really have to pull on a rope to raise your chair high into the air. When you let go of the rope, you'll slowly float back down to the ground. LEGO City is where kids can earn their LEGO driver's license, driving real LEGO cars and steering on their own. Kids can also learn to become heroes training to be firefighters, police or members of the Coast Guard. In LEGO Pirate land, prepare to get wet! One ride lets boats squirt passers-by with water cannons. (But don't worry, landlubbers get a few cannons of their own.) There's a pirate ship to explore. And finally, Miniland, which is a feature of every LEGOLAND, re-creates cities, landmarks and other attractions re-built in miniature entirely out of LEGO bricks. Many have interactive elements, like you can turn a crank the spins the Central Park carousel.
