This place is incredible! Been here numerous times. I have hiked all trails in all seasons. Best hiking by far in New Jersey. I have been to many trails in south and central and west nj. This place has all types of trails. Great workout trails that last hours and small easy quick ones to take in the scenery. Great for dogs and kids. Drive two hrs every other weekend to get here and it's worth it. Make sure you arrive early in weekend before 930am. This place gets tons of visitors and the lot is jammed packed. Beautiful streams and waterfalls and overlooks and lakes. Plan accordingly if you take deep long hike. Never go off trail ticks snakes and getting lost can be avoided if planned and prepared.

Note; if your taking rt 17 as if aug 27th road blocked but there is a detour.

Perfect if you just want to see the wooded outdoors. This path has 2 lakes for you to lookout on. Also features a beautiful waterfall. I know somewhere in the park you can go swimming near the waterfall. Also bring your dog if you can. There are tons of people with their dogs on this trail. Also its pretty well made for strollers too. Just be prepared for the big inclines while making your way up to the big lake.

Lots of free parking and easy trail signs.
The lower loop of the park around the lake is great for an easy stroll and great view. The trial to the top has some s steep parts but it's manageable. The trail has great views of the stream leading down the mountain. Lots of dogs along the way and stroller friendly

Great trail the trial gets steep but I got a running stroller up the hill.
Lots of water falls and small animals along the way.
Great way to spend about 2-3 hours
