nice easy walk, nice scenery. Some areas with exposed tree roots, so people unsteady on feet may need a walking stick. Plenty of shade.

Blue to orange trail. Well maintained and not much elevation chance. Nice views of the water and landscapes changes. Easy with a 2 year old and a back pack

Trail was mostly well-marked and quite easy—would not consider it moderate. Some sections were very boggy/muddy. Parts along the creek were trash-strewn. Not too many other hikers. Saw a large snake and an enormous spider, as well as many birds.

This was Very easy and enjoyable trail, you’ll find diversity of trees and plants, great views and scenery

Such a great hike through various kinds of scenery, and even an old abandoned house. Partially along the water (a chorus of frogs!), partially in the woods, with well placed benches and all well marked. We loved it!

Great for a dry winter day

Great Trail. Not well marked on some turns. Great view of the Rancocas Creek most of the trip.

Essentially in people's backyards for half the trail. Constant loud noise pollution from the turnpike. Can even see the turnpike from a lot of the trail.

For some reason AllTrails deleted my review! So here it is again. I loved this trail, and it was a little buggy at parts, but well maintained and marked. There are also a few little things to explore if you choose to, like the abandoned building. There were also a few nice scenic spots and plenty of wildlife!

Very nice and pleasant. Easy and shady overall. Short muddy bursts, many overgrown and blown down trees. But it’s pretty. The ruined cabins at the end (if you go counterclockwise) are cool.

diverse terrain for beginner to moderate rider. mix of singletrack and double. mostly flat with a few climbs/decent but limited. some tech. great water views. a few spots under water but easy to ride throughout. spots of significant overgrowth so wear sleeves if temp permits. lots of bugs. overall nice local spot. will be back.

A great area for trail running, although bug spray is highly recommended. Mosquitoes and biting flies are bad around the swamps and there is a lot of tall grass for ticks.

Enjoyed an early morning trail run with friends. Not all intersections had trail markers and parts of the trail are overgrown and with several downed trees to scramble over but, still easy enough to navigate. Be sure to apply some bug spay and check for ticks after. I found a tiny stowaway on my leg when I got home.
