Very nice, and lightly challenging, hiking. Mostly good footing and nothing too steep. Beautiful surroundings. Lots more trails than what is shown. We changed trails to reduce the hike to 4.3 miles. There are signs everywhere stating that dogs are not allowed, but once you get to one of the trail head parking areas you can bring dogs. Dogs are not allowed in the other, more groomed areas. Also, during the warm seasons there is an entrance fee of $7 per car for non-NJ residents and $5 for residents. Well worth it. This is an excellent park for bikers as well.

NOTE: All Trails always comes out significantly shorter, if you track yourself, than my Garmin hiker's GPS. On this hike AT measured 3.8 mi, Garmin measured 4.3. I believe Garmin to be correct.
