This trail is in Clayton Park and provides an easy walk through rolling woodlands. It would make a great trail run an a fast mountain bike ride. A highlight for this hike was spotting a great horned owl roosting in a white pine tree next to the trail! (p.s. I should have read the other reviews more carefully, as stated the directions bring you to a NJ Forest Service facility, get directions directly to Clayton Park instead).

small climbs but overall pretty tame....

Awesome trails easy to follow directions and did the bridges trail is a lot of fun

Excellent hiking with my 8 year old son today. Trails are definitely kid friendly and the woods are beautiful! Glad Mr. Clayton didn't sell land for logging. Great stand of old trees through out park.

A great trail for running because of the nice dirt trails and because it isn't particularly rocky. Well marked even though the trails are really well used and obvious. For a circuit trail run, this park is ideal!

Love this place, it's hard to find a good hike in New Jersey and this place is beautiful and has a lot to explore

For the first time ever going through the trail it was very easy. Beautiful sites to see and great to bring the dogs along!
