Not sure why this hike is rated as moderate unless it's based on distance. This is a relatively flat trail, either paved or of crushed cinder, with few wooded areas. It's a nice walk but not what I would consider hiking.

Wide open trails, beautiful scenery and wildlife. Great for biking, bird watching, family hike. Only small negative (for me) - you will see people :)

Really great easy trail to ride. Lots to see and a hidden gem.

It's always been a challenge to find a trail that had light traffic and was pretty wide open. We have a young guard dog, 127lbs, if he doesn't know u and u are approaching us, he's gonna "defend mom" aka seriously scare the s***t out of everyone. Tried hiking with him in the Ramapo State Forest but that's waaay too dangerous with the trails being narrow and steep half the time. Every time ppl would pass, I had to basically head up the mountain and hope for the best on the way down. Not fun. This trail was the opposite - super wide, well marked, very light traffic (and that's on a Saturday morning!). Will def make it a weekly thing!

Nice place but a lot of foot traffic depending on the time that you go. The trails are scenic but if solitude is what you're looking for, this isn't the place to go. Going to try going during the week day when I'm able to in hopes it is slightly better!

Love the many trails that can be used. It can feel like a new park just by exploring a new section of the park. In most parts of the park biking is really easy. And they keep adding trails to the park. I use it mostly for hiking and a little birding.

Great, well maintained, pretty lake and a nice little creek down in the woods of Rosedale park. Well trafficked so don't expect solitude during peak hours, but most weekdays are rather quiet. Often see horses on the trails. Easy terrain, but the non-gravel trails get quite muddy and sloppy in spring/fall when it's been raining frequently. Plenty of trails with enough variation to make a walk of whatever length you want, but it's all mostly flat, only a few hills. And quite a few deer and other wildlife wandering around to see.

Beautiful, relatively new and very well marked trail! I started from lake Rosedale in Rosedale Park and did the loop around Northwest Park. This trail or at least this section is not paved so I wasn't crazy excited but the lake, the scenery in general and the fact that trail is very well marked with signs showing you where to go were reasons I had fun on that trail. The trail can take you to see different things (AT&T tower, farmlands, etc.) so the signs are great help.
