So lucky to live so close to this park. Use this to train for my runs, currently NYC Marathon, so its perfect for long runs where you don’t get bored looping around, which you can also do if you’re looking for a short walk or run. Clean, well taken care of and good people around. Multiple lots/points of entry especially in the Rochelle Park/Saddle Brook area.

Would definitely so this again, an easy ride, paved all the way with some nice scenery and a lot of fun to do with friends or family. Just keep an eye out there are some not legal mountain bike trails with some nicely made jumps and bridges, a lot of fun if you know what your doing. The best one was probably like 5 minutes from the beginning.

Great paved stretch of trail that’s relatively quiet, perfect for running long distances. Use it to train for half marathons (it’s really 12 miles from start to finish).

Great bike trail that is smooth and paved that goes through different parks with ponds and streams. Scenic all throughout and runs along a stream that goes under and on bridges. Will be coming back.

Nice up and back paved path for a bike ride with kid carrier in tow. Beware of amateur bikers who think they're in the Tour de France...

This is a nice, easy nature walk on a paved path, some of which is along a peaceful stream. I really like the part by the Glen Rock Duck Pond the best. There is a "carp viewing area" along the river. If you are walking towards Fair Lawn from Glen Rock, just past the bridge to Ridgewood is a small but pretty man-made waterfall. We even saw a deer along the path today. There was also a hawk and a green heron.

There is not enough shade on this trail
It's great for strollers or cycling with young kids with proper sun protection but I will not recommend it for dogs
