The Musconetcong River, with some of the best trout fishing in the state, winds through Allamuchy Mountain State Park. Several miles of trails crisscross through the forests and marshlands of the park. Waterloo Village, which is located on the banks of the Morris Canal, is well known for its historic buildings and diverse cultural programs of classical and popular music as well as dance and opera.

Hiked on New Years morning. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We hiked down to the lake on the ice covered blue trail then hiked out on the white trail. Great day.

Fun ride. Not terribly difficult. There were a few moderate climbs on the route I took and some nice flat spots. I only ran into 6-8 people out on hikes. I'll be back in the early spring

I've never done this exact loop but have combined all the trails here in different order. There's a great view at the top of white to yellow to L at teal. It's a pretty place with a heavy canopy and blind corners. I have seen bears here and lots of bear sign. Solo hikers should really carry pepper spray to be on the safe side. Although attacks are rare, 90% occur on solo hikers. Food for thought.

Flat, kinda boring, but good for a quick jog or if you'd rather walk in nature vs. your neighborhood. The trail is great for bikers and continues well past what is shown here. Try the hiking trails that are off of this trail. The white trail to the yellow to the teal leads to a great view and is just about 2 miles RT

Very flat until the turn onto the Iron Mine Trail. Then there are some moments of steepness but nothing all that severe. The flat section gets a decent amount of mountain bikers. But the Iron Mine Trail portion was as quiet as can be.

Not the best lake for peace and quiet, as the water gets overrun with traffic in the summer, but the fishing is good. Lots of islands break up the scenery and provide a varied landscape.
