It was beautiful! Be sure to hike down towards the water and hike through the sea grass. So beautiful! Hiked it with my 6.5 and 4.5 year old kids.

Nice trails; some very steep hills which made for a great work out. Biked some and hiked some. All around great place with pretty views. Forgot I was near the beach as felt like I was in the mountains. People are friendly and clean bathrooms. Going again tomorrow.

Once again this trail was a pleasure and a nice workout. This time we went left at the Grand Tour loop and found it to be a bit less challenging.

This was a very nice day hike which included several scenic views of the Navesink River. The trail was very well groomed and a good amount of mountain bikers. Beware of the bikers coming in both directions especially along turns as visibility is low. What was also nice was that the trail had a nice mix of both flat, downhill and uphill sections. If you want to do only 2.3 miles just follow the Rocky Point Trail loop.

Well marked trail, just a little muddy and a few trees down due to the recent storm. Nothing impossible though. Dog friendly, bike friend and hiker friendly. Just keep an eye out for bikers, right corners. Nice views of the Navesink River, not incredibly challenging but it will give you a good sweat if you’re in relatively good shape.

I've been mountain biking these trails for years. Highly recommended for a good workout. Nice fast trails combined with some decent climbs.

Fun hike, not too strenuous, very enjoyable. Somewhat muddy because of the rain the night before, but still very manageable

Great weather (Mid 50s and sunny) for November. Heavy rain the night before made some parts a little muddy but overall a nice easy to moderate hike with great views of the river.

Really nice hike! We saw a red headed woodpecker and a downy woodpecker. Lots of places to rest and eat snacks. There was even a bathroom about halfway through. We really enjoyed the little beach and dock.
