This is a great place with something for everyone. There's always something new to see or a part of a trail we haven't explored yet. You can get lost sometimes as the markings aren't abundant, but it certainly gives an adventure! If you want to stay on easy trails and not go too deep in this doesn't happen. Great for kids, trail running, etc.
My wife and I really enjoyed this hike. It has little hills that break up the usually flat jersey hikes. We will be visiting again
was rough on the bike. lots of tree roots, better hiking than biking
Legit. Nice and wide open, service the whole way for easy map use. There's a fit trail as well. My dog loved it. Saw a couple people less than 5. Easy definitely not a difficult trail but can be. Good for running nice even ground.
took my 11 and 7 year old ...it was a fun starter trail for the kids.
River's Edge was fun. Narrow path, some muddy parts, steep steps in certain places, lots of greenery. Went with my teenage daughter and enjoyed every moment. Did Hidden Creek next which was much easier with wide open paths. Great trails overall!
The Shark River Trails are such a treat! Not being from the area, I'd never have guessed that this delightful diamond could be found in the city "rough!" The fit trail is a blast and makes for a super dynamic workout. Also, the way the sun cuts through the trees while birds and squirrels scurry around you makes for a truly peaceful experience! Not super heavily trafficked that I've seen, and most of the trails have a pretty wide path. If you're in the area, I would definitely check it out!!
