The Musconetcong River, an excellent freshwater fishing spot, flows over and around boulders through Stephens State Park. An easy walking, but rocky path follows the river with places for picnicking in shaded areas. Less than one mile east along Waterloo Road at Saxton Falls are the remains of one of the Morris Canals twenty-three locks and a section of the old canals towpath. The original canal was 90 miles in length, stretching from Newark to Phillipsburg, and was used to ship coal and iron across the state. However, the canal could not compete with the development of the Morris and Essex Railroad in the late 1800s, and the canal was eventually abandoned.

A good moderate loop trail.

Good hike, not really colorful in the forest yet. I'll go back in a couple of weeks to see if it's better. Tough on the knees coming down orange trail.
