Enjoyed the hike. Relatively easy but with some rocky uphill parts that gets your heart pumping. Well marked. Probably gorgeous in fall!

One of the least interesting hikes I’ve done in NJ, not at all challenging and not many good views. Would be a good trail for families with young kids.

Excellent trail.

One of the best blazed trails. The trail guide was a delight! He could tell you every detail. It was a bit muddy in some spots. Some really good views if you take the directions from the guide.

Went yesterday on an absolutely beautiful fall day. The two waterfalls we saw were incredible, as was most of the scenery. The trails weren’t super challenging but there were some points with steep elevation. Pretty crowded which negated any possibility of seeing wildlife. Also, we did get lost due some poorly marked trails, but we were able to get back on. Overall, if you avoid the wide heavily trafficked trails you are in for a great hike.

Free admission on Wednesdays. Nice fall colors in some areas. Went into one of the buildings with some sort of chrysanthemum bonsai things. Pretty interesting. Lots of walking to do here

Always a joy!

Explore the Thain Family Forest with this rail to trail adventure which is perfect for kids. If you enter the Spicebush Trail near the Rock Garden you can do a great loop and bring a stroller. There are steps but this way you can carry the stoller down not up them. Go on a Wednesday - free grounds access for all. Lovely Fall adventure.

Between the zoo and gardens an enjoyable day.

Love the trail itself but needs to be marked. Walked in circles the whole time

Look for the wild places on the heights along Mill Street. Deer and wild turkey can sometimes be found there.

Nice trail to kill a few hours at. Tripod Rock is always a cool little spot and there are a few views but they’re not particularly impressive. Some nice uphill hiking and the trail on the side of the reservoir are super refreshing.

I love reading people's reviews on what they see in the woods. It is the woods so you may see bear, snakes, deer, raccoons etc. You may even get bitten by bugs as well. Expect it, be prepared or just stay home. Anyway i was hesitant to do this hike because of the lame views but decided anyway because its not far from home. The views are very lame in fact. Lucy's overlook has too many trees in the front of it and the high tension wires at other vistas take away from the charm. At 4 or more miles much better vistas can be found at a shorter distance near by at other trails. Just my opinion of Pyramid Mountain is don't understand all the hype.

Great family hike!! 5 miles
Well marked, Wear boots, Very muddy! After a little rain.
Red stripe trail is a 100ft walk down a rocky trail. Walking sticks will come handy.

This Park is so nice,You can expend hours of pure Nature Contact. Big Trees,creeks,nice trails,well marked. overall You will enjoy your visit.

Overall good hike but it does cross through a swap which gets muddy after a rainy day.

Well marked. Easy and moderate trails. Alongside the lake. Not too isolated or crowded.

Very organized and clear view. I enjoyed this trail with my girlfriend and my hike buddies. Watch out for the descending rocks and deep mud. Very fun hike

The trail has clear marks and some interesting boulders. The level is relatively easy.

Too many people in the beginning. Awesome chicken of the woods mushrooms. Brightest and biggest we have ever seen.

I loved this trail. not crowded and off leash dogs aren't a problem.

nice trail, moderate. bring bug spray.

nice mix of easy and moderately difficult. will go again for sure

It's great to hike so close to home without driving far. bought a map at REI , still discovering all the unmarked trails.

The pyramid mountain trail system is really beautiful. The trails are well marked and neatly groomed, and there are varying levels of terrain for hikers of different ability. It's perfect for hiking and snowshoeing. That being said, please be aware that there are copperhead snakes present in the area. Obviously this is not the park's fault or responsibility, hikers are guests in the wildlife's home. We were so focused on keeping an eye out for foxes, bears, and deer that snakes didn't even come to mind and our puppy got bitten by one. We got him to the animal shelter for an anti-venom treatment ASAP, and he's going to be okay. I just wanted to make people aware of something I stupidly didn't think twice about.

You need to go after a lot of rain. Then the waterfall is really cool. I like parking at the Walker Road entry. It adds more miles, but is nice to hear the train at Turtleback Zoo, and you really can raise the pace on these trails. This is one of the most dense suburban areas in the world; so, to lose yourself in the woods is such a wonderful experience. Very dog friendly park, with lots of streams!

Full Moon Hike with REI on the yellow/white/blue trail to Tripod Rock in downpour rain. As a beginner hiker there were moments of intensity but overall excellent terrain and vista. Would love to do it again if only to see the moon without an overcast sky and rain. :)

went to this place to trail run. the terrain is a bit tough for trail running, I couldn't get any momentum built up because of all the rocks, tree roots, and rock scrambling. definitely not for trail running if you want to run fast, but definitely a decent hike if you're in the area. wouldn't go out of my way for it though, the views are lame and there wasn't that much to see. the balancing rock was pretty cool to see

Beautiful views for either a run or casual walk
