Really super nice trail. Maybe a little ambitious for a newbie like me, but well worth the effort. Someone mentioned a lot of sun. That was not my experience. There were small pockets, but even without sunscreen totally manageable. Really lovely views of the water from the trail.

Gorgeous views of the ocean! Make sure to wear sunscreen if you do this hike though; a lot of it isn’t covered by shade

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

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.

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.

A couple of tough climbs, but well worth it. We added a few other trails to get in 5+. Beautiful woods!

Loved these trails. Several come out to beautiful views of the Navasink River. Trails had a bit of elevation to them but nothing too hard for the novice.

Beautiful summer Sunday afternoon. Did Laurel ridge into the Grand Tour trail. Shared the trail with quite a few mountain bikers. These trails are listed as moderate, however, me being a novice, I found them relativity easy.
