on Bridges Loop Trail

A nice friendly trail through the forest. Since I do have a bad knee, I would recommend some type of hiking/trekking pole if you have issues with knees/ankles especially because of the tree roots. A real favorite for all terrain bikers (I saw at least 6 this morning). Doctor's Creek Trail is currently under construction and closed at a certain part.

It is a nice place! I went with my two dogs and two toddlers. I was able to use my BOB stroller but it wasn't the easiest in some places. if my kids didn't walk up the hill, then I'm not sure I would have made it lol. I recommend for kids to walk !

Awesome park for hikes that range from 1-6 miles. The scenery is beautiful and there is plenty of wildlife! My dog and I will definitely be back. There was a section of Doctor's Creek Trail closed. The sign didn't note why or how long.

Great walk with the dog & kids.

This trail is in Clayton Park and provides an easy walk through rolling woodlands. It would make a great trail run an a fast mountain bike ride. A highlight for this hike was spotting a great horned owl roosting in a white pine tree next to the trail! (p.s. I should have read the other reviews more carefully, as stated the directions bring you to a NJ Forest Service facility, get directions directly to Clayton Park instead).

small climbs but overall pretty tame....
