If you're looking for a place solely for hiking, and a trail where you feel like you've gotten away from civilization, then Round Valley is not the ideal place. For the first 3-4 miles, you're never far away from main roads or houses. Round Valley is also a popular place for mountain bikers, so again you don't really feel away from it all.

With that said, if you're looking for a place in NJ for an overnighter where you can pitch up a tent, get a campfire going (with plenty of fallen wood), and where the campsites are decently separated, then Round Valley is actually quite nice for that. Plus many of the campsites are within a stones throw of the reservoir which makes for a nice setting. So I'd say 3 stars for hiking, but maybe 4 stars for camping.

The trail that starts and ends at the end of the bridge is untouched, we had a difficult time finding out way though the trail the first time since the trail gets so thin and over grown at some points, besides that, it's a great place to walk.
