Great park, good trails. Some construction happening on the one road so part of the Red trail is blocked but there are good work arounds.

Great local park. Dog and child friendly. Smooth, well kept trail takes about an hour to walk.. be aware for anyone with hip/knee problem that trail contains stairs. Park has canoe launch, butterfly garden, playground, restrooms, picnic tables, and gazebos.

It's a pretty easy straight forward trail. On nice days it's a bit crowded, but gorgeous and fun to hike!

Absolutely love this beautiful park. Great for running, as the trails are smooth and well kept. Lots of shade makes running quite doable, even in our hot and humid S Jersey summers. What a nice discovery.

It is great for kids and older adults. It has a cute butterfly garden, lots of benches, and is a peaceful stroll even on a busy day. Make aure to check out their events.

A beautiful scenic trail around the lake was my first experience with Cody my daughter's pet. We both loved this trail while parked making this post, a park ranger came over to see if I needed and help. The trail was well marked and well maintained. All the people we met were courteous and friendly. A beautiful experience and wonderful view. Highly recommended for runners and hikers.

We love Smithville Park. The trails are easy enough for kids to walk or bike. They love the playground too. Many picnic tables. Great place for families.

Great place to run, although on busy days you need to wind your way through the dog obstacles.

Great place to walk, historical information is displayed throughout the park. Boardwalk goes over the lake. Very clean and surrounded by beautiful remnants of the Smithville town.

Did a two mile walk, then did a few miles on the bike.. This was a beautiful lake with a lot of bridges, wooden staircases, and lots of resting spaces to enjoy.. I was a bit disapointed that the loop was not 4 miles... Instead the many trails total 4 miles.. Though it was fun to explore and would make for a good jog.. It was not really an intense hike.. But this place is perfect for family stuff!

So much to do and it's beautiful! Whether it's playing at the playground in the woods with the kids or walking the path through the pond or hiking through the woods, you won't be disappointed with this one!

The trail is paved whick makes for easy walking, running, biking and pushing a baby coach. All of which we saw on our journey. There were canoers - which had access to a ramp to bring up the canoe, equped with picnic beaches to enjoy a break. A set of steps to go up a level, a playground, where there was a child birthday party being hosted. We really enjoyed the open space, plus lushness of trees, there are several trails to take, we opted fot the red trail, which is what this review is based on.
