Road bikingGreat!

Great bike ride. There are people walking, skating, walking with their dog but more than enough room. Nice view. There are hills and quick turns into the tunnel. Just remember to stay to the right when you can so cyclists can pass. Have fun

Have never finished the entire route, but it’s a very nice hike in the shade and stroller friendly . It does get very crowded but people are good at wearing masks.

HikingGreat!

Trail is nicely marked and easily identifiable. With the number of people sharing the trail for hiking, walking, running, biking and bird watching, you will not get lost or go off track. People just need to remember to stay on the right side and pass on the left.

Great trial! Beautiful scenery! Trail can definitely become crowded. It was a well needed break from the hustle of life!! So many dragonflies

This is an awesome place to walk, skate, bike ride. It has paved trails that link like 4-5 different park areas. Lots of nature! Sometimes it’s very crowded though, especially now. with covid people don’t have many options for getting out and this is one of them.

This is a trail between suburban houses and Saddle River. It didn’t feel remote or scenic and is not strenuous. The path is paved, wide and flat, which is good for strollers, little kids and dog walking. If that was what I was looking for, this would be a great trail. I was looking for more of a nature hike.

Nice paved multipurpose path winding along Saddle River. I did the southern portion starting at Railroad Ave. and up just past Easton Tower. Very dog & kid friendly. Some parts were muddy, including the wooden catwalks under the major roads.

Really a walking and biking path rather than a hiking trail, but a nice spot to take young kids and get them in nature.
