Allaire State Park Trails is a 6.8 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Howell Twp, NJ that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
We did the Green trail, it is a well cut out trail, marker's do lack here and there though. It's well kept, minus the trash from (dirty) people on the highway as you cross under I-195. Also, throughout almost the entire trail you can hear cars nearby or in the distance, so don't expect to be getting too far away from civilization and into nature in this park. Very easy as for elevation changes (not much at all), paths are cleared out well too. We went during a wine festival and got hit for $5 parking fee, just as a heads up, that also attributed to the noise levels. The sign's along the trail are nice, explaining some of the local trees in the area.
Fine trails bit not the best outing
Decent for a trip if your interested in seeing new parks. This park has the "came, saw, conquered" mentality and after conquering the few trails you won't find yourself saying I want to come back.
