Oh my God! This trail is in major need of restoration and love. I know that it's an unpaved Trail, which is rare to find in central New Jersey, but this trail is completely unsuitable for trail running. It can accommodate one person at a time single file, and sometimes there is not enough room to maneuver. What are the obstructions you may ask? Downed trees, poison ivy, and grasses enough to suggest that I have been the only person to come here this year. Moreover, any labeling as a moderate trail is more likely due to the fact that it is not maintained, not due to any significant changes in incline or intensity. It is is poorly blazed if you are trying to keep tabs pace faster than 4.0 mph.

This is a great loop for trail running. Some surprising terrain back there.
