Fun hike w great views

A Go-to on nice days.

Good quick hike

One of the most nicest park for MTB - friendly trails - well mark - I always want to come back - Dries fast

Really nice hike! We saw a red headed woodpecker and a downy woodpecker. Lots of places to rest and eat snacks. There was even a bathroom about halfway through. We really enjoyed the little beach and dock.

I used to trail run here daily, these trails are so great for it!

I would have given it 5 stars --- but there were a lot of cycling on the same trail. Very dangerous. It is not a cycling trail only - therefore it cycling is allow they should be more careful

A nice little hike with history of the NJ gun battery pacements... then enjoy one of the many local restaurants.

This is a very good spot to hike. If your looking for a short and simple yet soothing and rewarding then you have found the spot. This is my 4th hike I have ever done so im an amateur but i highly recommend checking this spot out, the ending is gorgeous.

This is a wonderful trail full of twists and turns. The flora fauna are spectacular. Be on alert, as this trail is commonly used by cyclists! The only reason I did not give it five stars, is because it lacked a water source, which I strongly desire on a hike.
Dogs are always welcome on this trail. Have fun and happy hiking.

Beautiful trail! Took us a little over an hour to hike the trail did a little running also. Hardly anyone on trail. We did the black diamond trail and it was very easy to navigate. After a great hike we went to lunch at the inlet cafe. It was a perfect day date :). Enjoy. You will love!

Small beach is quite nice after some trailing.

Well maintained trail. A bit more crowded than I would like. Gotta keep an eye out for mountain bikers or they may run you over. We saw some wild life, including deer and a fox.

Nice, frequent elevation changes keep it interesting.

Loved this trail!

Nice, quiet trail. Steep and rocky at points with tree roots jutting out so be careful! Watch out for bikers. A few view points of the river.

Beautiful Park, some cool trails deeper in the woods, and a few nice views along the way.

Great short hike for good healthy work out. Watch out for the mountain bikes though. My wife and I have hiked this trail in every season. Nice in snow as in the summer. Many views of the rivers and the ocean over the barrier island. Enjoy

Good challenging trail. Some of the trail markers need some maintenance but other than that very enjoyable.

This is one of, if not the best place in NJ for riding actual mountain bike trails. The trails are very technical and well maintained. The scenery and views make it hard to beat. It does get pretty packed on the weekends, especially after 9 or so. But it's well worth the crowd.

Easy, paved trail. One small incline. This trail is stroller friendly and offers a nice view of Sandy Hook and the ocean beyond.

Awesome fall scenery and beautiful waterfront visits by Naversink and Shrewsbury Rivers. Moderate levels on nicely developed paths.
