Down trees but nothing too bad. Easy trail for a quick run.

Pretty basic. Lots of trees down from the recent storm. But basic doesn’t mean bad. It was a nice getaway, and close by.

Good day hike. Not the best place if you’re going to escape to nature. Reminders that you’re only 30 min from the city of everywhere. Lots of dogs. Pretty overlooks including views of the city. Some of the intersections are not marked the best. Ended up going if the trail towards the big meadow at the end because we lost the blazes. All in all not sad we went, but given that we hike to escape city life we probably won’t be going back.

Nice hike. Great views of NYC and PTown. Nice hike around lake and Lambert Tower. Went on a Thursday and there were a decent amount of people. Some trash and broken glass, but have to admit that it exceeded my expectations. A short video that I made of the hike https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd336dL4YVE

Easy to moderate trail. Too close to the road so wilderness feeling is not there. Some trash on the ground, some pieces of glass. Trail could be marked better. Views are nice

This is a moderate trail. Very nice views, although it was hazy today. Some of the intersections are poorly marked, but it is well maintained.

Highways, sheriff's department, private property, and people everywhere. This hike has everything you'd probably hate in one hike. We were so close to the roads that we heard the ice cream truck jingle for about 15 - 20 minutes of our hike. The parts that you do get away it's nice and that's the only reason it's not getting one star. I would also say there is enough elevation during this hike to be borderline moderate. Parts of the trail is overgrown and has no shade, so be prepared. Almost no bugs or mud so I guess that's cool.

This place is a public area has many roads that go along with it. Not a bad place at all just very packed on weekends, also very dog friendly must were a leash. I had a great time, If you stick to the trails very easy if you free roam it can get difficult. Beginner/moderate choice is in your hands

Lots to see. Trail markers were at times a bit difficult to find and figure out directions. Overall good for my family. We enjoyed ourselves.

Took yellow trail, super hard for me as a rookie/intermediate mountain biker using hybrid tires. Very mountainous and lots of jagged rocks sticking out of the ground. Much more fit for hiking as opposed to biking.

This trail is quirky and fun but definitely had some inclines. Didn’t give it five stars because the markings were sometimes difficult to find and there was some interaction with roads. But we got to see horses and a turkey!

Hike was great but I got a complaint from my hiker buddy saying it was not easy. Even though I thought it was. For beginners do not recommend. Overall, it was good.

Even though I live in the area I never tried the Trails but lately since they closed gym I’ve been exploring parks and trails and I was surprised this one is nice I did both trails the yellow and white and they were easy to run in them. Love the idea because trails are less crowded than the main loop, and the views are amazing I really loved it.

Good view of the city. Pretty easy hike. Trail sometimes has to cross the road/go on main road. Overall enjoyable though, very dog friendly

Went today before 8 So many people all over the road but the trails was really desert Easy to walk nice views of the city . We followed the yellow trail and we could hear the traffic of the highway. Very unpleasant. The area is beautiful but unfortunately if you follow the yellow trail you end up in the middle of the street with houses all around you . I have to say I will not go back because I didn’t feel I was immerse in nature. The all park itself is beautiful. Pick nick area Friendly people ... In the way out we stoped by the Paterson Falls A beautiful place with very easy walks
