This isn't a hike as much as it is a walk through a lovely wooded area.

I loved this little park. It is so pretty. My dogs loved it to. I have not been back in a few years but I was fascinated by it. Wish I could post the pictures I had but they are not in this phone. Wish it were a longer trail and closer to my home. And I agree with the previous post. It is not really moderate. I would call it easy.

This is definitely an easy trail and not moderate. I took my two kids, one of their friends and the friends Mom. The kids had fun climbing over fallen trees. We mixed the red and yellow trails during the late afternoon. The weather was perfect and it was a nice leisurely hike.

Went earlier in the day with my lab. Not many people which was a good thing bc I off leashed him. A very zig zag trail. Not the easiest to read

Close to home hike. I live nearby so I go for a quick jog through the woods, but beware if you're traveling from elsewhere. Students kind of trash the trails with garbage, lots of graffiti. Sad because the views of the raritan are pretty nice as is the forest.

close to home and we did about 4 miles through the greens and the trails. trails not marked well but if you get "lost" its easy to find the way back.
scenic and fun .. great for a hike with a few friends..

4/14/14 took under an hour. there are two red marked trails and a yellow trail. We mixed it up. starting at the sign (which I put out a cigarette which someone left to burn) taking the double red marked trail up toward rt1 taking the wide path past the pines. down under the bridge stopped at the dam. We usually go father but the tiny stream was washed larger. not for me to cross. headed back along the water but found ourselves climbing up because take trail disappeared. for the most part the downed trees are mostly cleaned up. there are many dead trees laying against other trees I'd hate to be the one under the trees when they come down.
