I already knew from an earlier hike that the blue trail in Silas Condict Park doesn't provide that special of a view, unless maybe it's sunset or autumn or both. I apparently didn't remember (because as soon as I got there, I felt like I'd been there before) that the red trail's point of interest is nothing but a big ol' rock without even a view.

And the white trail was closed off with fences and a big "NO TRESPASSING" sign. The signs out front of the park had warned about construction and certain things being closed, but they never mentioned any effect to the hiking trails.

As for Mountainside Park, yes, you get a view clear to Manhattan from the summit. But there's nothing interesting in the foreground, which doesn't make for a very good photograph. Also, the hike is rather long. In the future, the best bet is probably to stick to the yellow trail the whole way, or else blue to orange to yellow (the blue trail's final approach to the summit is just ridiculous, as I learned by going back down via it).
