makes for a great short day hike with some pretty views and a few parts of the trail that are a little technical.

Did 3.6 miles of trails with my daughter and lab buster brown. A little slick down by the stream after the rain this weekend, good walk, very few people out on the trails. Good morning hike.

Got a little confused bc there weren't any trail maps but it was a great hike. Take the pink trail for a short hike to the overlook... I would say easy to moderate!

Beautiful Fall Hike! Waterfalls and lake are spectacular. The green trail was closed off at about the 1 mile mark but there are plenty of places off the trail to hike.

This is a great park that is rarely crowded. There's a wide varity of trail typs and some awsome waterfalls.

Not real rock climbing but too my son and his bud's (8 year olds) and let them climb the rocks along the river. Fun time, nice Park. Topped it off with Dairy Queen about 10 minutes away on Route 57 in Hackettstown

I absolutely love Hiking here. it is gorgeous, especially in the summer when the waterfalls are flowing fast. It's relaxing, and just difficult enough but comfortable to enjoy and not be out of breath. I was able to bring food and picnic on the rocks next to the waterfalls, so relaxing feeling the breeze come off the rocks. The trails are well marked, and the view at the top of the mountain was beautiful.

First time there today with a 7 year old and 2 dogs. Trails are nice and clean. Need to explore more for 5 stars.

I have been on this trail as both a hiker and hike leader. It's a nice hike with the dogs when time is limited. Scenery is very nice.

Great park to take your puppy to and to explore. It has a beautiful lake and a lot of wildlife. There is a pretty great trail leading to the high point of the mountain, which has an amazing view of the area around the mountain. :)
