Went today on the Blue Trail for the first time. Beautiful being so close to the water. A bit muddy but there are usually a smaller trail running next/near the main trail in order to avoid points of mud. For a holiday, not so many people were on the trail; but also a great plus to soak it all in. Definitely plan to do again later in the future.

This recreation area has been reopened. Great climb up the steep, rocky Orange Trail. Lower parts of the Blue trail, across from the parking area are overgrown with thorns and may need long clothes or pruners to bypass. So many ferns and views from the summit are great!

Amazing view

Point Mountain loop with extended river loop.

Great dog-friendly hike in Hunterdon. Good mix of flat and up/down. Lovely views of the river and surrounding countryside. A few muddy spots, but that’s true of everywhere in this area at this time of year. Not a ton of other hikers, so a good social distancing hike as well.

Beginning was a bit of a tricky scramble with young kids and steep but really nice hike. Loved the blue trail by the river at the end

Great trail going up the orange and coming back down. BE CAREFUL! It is covered with inches of leaves and it is very slippery.

There are a few good views. You want to make sure to avoid the white trail. I got lost a few times on that trail, and it is unkept. There’s a nice picture spot at the top of the mountain.

It is a very rocky trail but the views are awesome. Overlooking farm country. Took us about 3 hours for the blue/orange trail with breaks and sitting at the lookout for about 45 min. Would definitely do again.
