Wawayanda Mountain is a plateau making up the Eastern edge of the Vernon Valley. It is most famous for its section of the AT, known as the "Stairway to Heaven" and its Pinwheel Vista, which provides magnificent Westward views. The actual summit of Wawayanda Mountain is trailless but the easiest access to the top is via an old woods road, which skirts the summit rise. Those seeking an advanced challenge may bushwhack to the summit from the Pinwheel Vista using a map and compass or a GPS.
Have done this hike three times! First time in April 2017 with my daughter Tori - My first real hike! We did Pinwheel Vista and the beautiful Boardwalks, enjoyed the view from the Stairway to Heaven and then continued on to the AT to view the top. Went back 9/30/17 with my daughter Lily and then again with my sister in law Dee on 11/3/17 for her birthday! nothing like a hike on your birthday! It is one of my favorite hikes. Started at the boardwalk..so many things to see on the trail!
