Great mtb

- Nice trail, overall.
- A little confusing to navigate in parts, especially with so many intersecting roads and paths, but doable if you print a map in advance or use a phone for directions.
- Not too many changes in elevation; pretty easy for all ages.
- The falls and view from Washington Rock were nice, but nothing too memorable. Otherwise, not much else to see along the way.
- LOTS of bugs. Must bring bug spray!

Combined this trail with the Huyler's Landing and Closter Dock Trail loop which came to all together nearly 9.5 miles. Other reviews are true in so at the beginning yes you do hear the car noise at first/near ending the loop, but do not let that stop you. If combining both trails I do recommend starting with Forest trail, there are some steep steps which are pretty sketchy especially if it is damp out which you will have to go down. Though it is rated as easy I would say it was a little more than just that. The midpoint where both trails meet is a large picnic area on the water which probably does get busy as it is a very nice area, where most likely ppl go to take pictures and all. To me however it is nice to see so many ppl taking advantage of the area. The hike along the shore is just as awesome as hiking above for the views. Very worth it.

Great for biking!!

nice trail. no test rooms. small parking.

Pretty well-shaded for the most part. Wide easy trails.

Nice easy trail! perfect for my dog. Even has a water fountain to fill the water bowl

a go-to walk for me. this trail allows add extra loops to make this as long a hike as you'd want

My daughter and I found a quiet spot with the creek running by us and read a book. Nice and relaxing. It was a lot of fun-we’ll be back!

Loved the variety of terrain, a lake, castle ruins, views of Wanaque Reservoir and Appalachian foothills from high up near the water tower. This map will help you find your way: NYNJTC_NJParkMaps-RamapoMtn_2015-85x11.pdf

The trails are easy and decently marked, however it's easy to get off the trail if you are distracted, the falls are nice. Watch for bikes on the trails.

Love this trail. Easy to walk. Has a little of everything. Woods, marsh, rocks, beach, and a bathroom at the end of the trail

Nice and easy. Beautiful views from the bluffs.

Multiple trails. Lots of options.

Very good trail for.hiking and mountain biking.

Just a straight hike, not very scenic and a lot of bikers! It was very winding and fun but beware of ticks! My partner had 4 on him by the time we left and three more when we got home!

Easy trail along the shoreline. Great for dogs.

One of my favorite spots in SECT. Nice easy trail, beautiful views from the bluff.

Blue/Yellow trail- Steep climb, worth every second for the view.

it's a small preserve with many trails varying by great amount. the trails even include some like climbing and spectacular views from the top of the quarry where the stone came from for the kensico dam.

Clean, quiet

Really super nice trail. Maybe a little ambitious for a newbie like me, but well worth the effort. Someone mentioned a lot of sun. That was not my experience. There were small pockets, but even without sunscreen totally manageable. Really lovely views of the water from the trail.

Nice flat trail. Saw lots of wildlife- frog, turtle, hawks, blue heron. There is an elevated bird watching station along the eastern edge of the trail

Great hike. Many positives. Lots of blueberry bushes along the hike. Very rocky, lots of boulders to climb over. Not many scenic views on the red path, but it gets better on the red/yellow path. Trails are marked well, and there were plenty of other trails to try. Ample parking.

Nice trails good jumps
