From High Bridge you can take the high road, the rail trail, go towards Califon and return through Lockwood Gorge along the town and the river. Two different experiences on the same ride.

Walked a couple miles out and back from High Bridge. Looks like a great, flat trail for mountain biking and it was a nice stroll for us. There were plenty of hikers and bikers even though it was pretty hot. As such, if you're looking for quiet and solitude, this might not be the ideal venue. But if you want an easy flat trail with a decent amount of shade, it works.

Relaxing with nice scenery and convenient stopping palaces. Cycled this trail dozens of times and I travel from Westfield to do so. It's THAT food.

This is definitely a walk, not a hike. I went toward Schooley's and did a makeshift hike just to get a little dirty, but this is more for someone wanting to ride their bike or go for a run. If you are looking to hike on a mountain this is not where you want to go.

It is so beautiful here. Great for a walk or a bike ride. One of my favorite places.

A very simple hike—more of a really long walk, really—but very pretty. I took the Columbia Trail to River Road and walked the Ken Lockwood Gorge at gorge-level. It was a hot day, but the shade and the spray from the creak kept things enjoyable.

This is a very popular trail, so if you're looking for a hike to "lose yourself in your thoughts," this isn't in that genre. Even so, it was a pretty and refreshing long walk.
