Park at Glen Avenue lot (Locust Grove) in Millburn and start by taking the right-hand trail. Follow the yellow blazes all the way through to Mayapple Hill in West Orange. (If you like, you can take a short loop detour to see Hemlock Falls on the way.) Once at Mayapple Hill, turn around and retrace your steps.

It’s an awesome area but the trails turn into cow paths with all the mud.. I needed it for consistent heart rate and elevation today.. nope

parts were a bit rough but generally a very nice trail with varied scenery, a few hills, and some other random objects. A few views but best views are definitely going to be in the fall and winter. Great hill at the start which I used for training.

Very nice trail. A lot of junctions with other trails so it is very easy to cut the trail short when needed. However, some area the signs are not clear.

2.6.19. A great hike on a famous local trail (established in 1982) in the heart of NJ suburbia. My hike was just a small part of the Lenape's 34 mile full extent, and I chose to do an out and back that covered the Lenape Trail's route through all of the South Mountain Reservation, from Millburn Library in the south to Mayapple Hill (West Orange) in the North. The first part of the trail starts to the right of the Locust Grove parking lot by Millburn Library. It rises reasonably steeply for the first half mile or so, but once you have climbed it, you're suddenly in the wilds. Trails in the South Mountain Reservation are not famous for their clarity of marking, but the Lenape is a stark exception — the yellow blazes are plentiful and clear. At about the 3.8 mile mark, you have the option to take a detour loop to see Hemlock Falls. They were still frozen on my trip, and pretty cool at that. Shortly thereafter, we took the footbridge across South Orange Avenue, and then at 5.3 miles, we crossed Brookside Drive (leash any dogs — it's quite busy) and continued on going west, and then north, with the Orange Reservoir below to our right. At 6.7 miles, we crossed over the Northfield Avenue footbridge and made our way to some picnic tables in Mayapple Hill, our midpoint at 7.4 miles. This part of the trip is not especially great as you're walking past people's backyards, but Mayapple Hill is pleasant enough. We retraced our steps going back to Millburn, but of course, you could choose to end here if you have someone picking you up (there is a parking lot at Mayapple Hill). I'm calling this hike moderate as the elevation gain over the distance is very doable, but the return leg adds a good deal of distance to the hike, which can make it feel pretty hard on the legs by the end. If you're thinking about hiking this, here are my stats, per the app, as a rough guide: Distance: 13.6 miles Elevation Gain: 1,814 feet Moving Time: 4:34:19

Very pretty. Good for a short day hike, only a few hours to complete. Pretty views, creeks and waterfalls. Sadly a bit close to roads at some points, ruins a lot of the aesthetic, but makes it super accessible.

Starting the loop described in the pamphlet on the white blazed Rahway trail, with a 15 min. lunch stop, it took me 165 minutes to complete alone. It was not a very challenging hike, but long. It's a good one for children, first timers and/or flat landers. The mainly flat Rahway trail followed the river and brushed a few pond inlets here & there. It was somewhat scenic with alot of visible tree roots & water lillies. The falls were nice. The trail back to the parking lot was more up & down in the hills with alot of creeks & very scenic interior valley views, more like what I call a hike. From the southeastern fringe, there is a very nice lookout over the town of Millburn, NJ below. A nice local "not far away" hike for me, but in grade K compared to the North Jersey Ramapos's or Breakneck Ridge in NY State
